University of the West of Scotland (UWS) are delighted to announce an innovative new Masters programme on Leading People-centred Integrated Care. The programme is designed to provide a progressive pathway of Masters level study for staff working in health, social care, housing or community sectors locally, nationally or internationally. The programme will empower and enable participants to contextualise, develop and lead integrated services and to promote and enhance the quality of care and support to improve outcomes for people, professionals and organisations.
Developed alongside the established BA (Hons) Integrated Health and Social Care programmes at UWS, it reflects the ethos of The Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act (2014) and the World Health Organisation’s documents Strengthening a Competent Workforce (2012) and the Global Framework on Integrated People-centred Health Services (2016).
The programme aims are to:
1. Critically explore the concept of outcomes based, people-centred, integrated care from an individual, communities, service, organisational and international perspective.
2. Develop a critical awareness of the important role of contextual, cultural and socio-economic factors in improving population health and wellbeing outcomes.
3. Apply systematic and strategic thinking skills in planning, designing, implementing and evaluating people centred integrated care.
4. Demonstrate a critical understanding of compassionate, creative and courageous leadership behaviours required to support transformational change and improve outcomes with people.
A series of core and option modules are set within a framework of inter-related themes which include relevant policies, communication, leadership, change management and research.
