ProgrammesModule: Healthcare Innovation
Course Title: Healthcare Innovation
Course Code: UU-HCM-2060-UG
Programme: Bachelor of Arts in Healthcare Management - BL
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.
The main objectives of the course are:
- 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
- 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:
- To identify the core processes and mechanisms that underpin innovation and implementation
- To critically discuss the relationships between components of implementation processes
- To use theoretical models to explain processes and outcomes of implementation processes
- To critically compare and evaluate theoretical explanations for innovation implementation processes.
