Course Description:

Course/Module Description:

The module will range across different modes of innovation and different kinds of technologies, but most importantly, its aim is to provide participants with a framework through which they can make sense of the claims made about new techniques and systems of practice; identify the social processes and mechanisms that underpin them; and identify and develop useful evaluation questions and procedures that can be applied to them.

Course/Module Objectives:

The main objectives of the course are:

  1. To review and develop an understanding of key theories and frameworks through which we can have a general understanding of the ways that healthcare innovations are implemented, embedded, and integrated in practice
  2. To explore national and international case studies through which we can explore the different conditions that are associated with the success and failure of technological innovations.

Course/Module Learning Outcomes:

After completion of the course students are expected to be able:

  1. To identify the core processes and mechanisms that underpin innovation and implementation
  2. To critically discuss the relationships between components of implementation processes
  3. To use theoretical models to explain processes and outcomes of implementation processes
  4. To critically compare and evaluate theoretical explanations for innovation implementation processes.
