Leadership for Healthcare Improvement and Innovation

The University of Warwick via FutureLearn

This course may be unavailable.



Good organisational leadership can be key to influencing positive strategic outcomes, driving improvement and innovation across organisations.

On this course, you’ll learn about the general concept of leadership, going on to explore practical examples of innovative management across a range of healthcare settings.

You’ll examine real-life case studies of improvement and innovation projects drawn from a global context – including the UK, North America, Australia and Africa – to better understand patient and public leadership, as well as the need for great healthcare leadership on the front line.

This course would appeal to anyone with an interest in healthcare improvement. You do not have to work in healthcare, merely have an interest in how innovation can be encouraged in the sector.

If you have experience of healthcare (either as a professional or as a service user) you will have the opportunity to share your own knowledge with others as the course progresses.

Start your review of Leadership for Healthcare Improvement and Innovation

  • All those working in healthcare are aware of the need for improvement and innovation. We have the drugs, the technology and the demand but the leadership to deliver is often either lacking or unable to provide solutions.
    The course helps to bridge that gap, providing a background to leadership and change management together with examples of successful implementation of change and overcoming the many barriers.
    Clinicians and managers can both benefit from the ideas introduced and it is a good starting point for those who may have practical experience in a leadership role but no formal background in areas like quality improvement or innovation.
