Teaching

  • SHQM27 Politics and Policies

    This module is a compulsory module in the MSc Health Care Management programme. It will analyse the forces and processes that shape modern health care policies, discussing the phases of policy formation, implementation and evaluation. Theories and models of the policy making process will be examined as they relate to actual practice and the potential obstacles to `perfect implementation¿ will be studied. A series of contemporary issues such as rationing, patient and public involvement, and policy divergence after devolution will be discussed.
