Developing Future Leaders within Health and Social Care through a MSc Leadership Development Programme

Friday, 27 September, 2013

A MSc leadership programme at Edge Hill University has been developed in collaboration with twenty-six key stakeholders who hold senior/executive positions within health and social care, including; an executive nurse, chief biomedical scientist and regional lead for North West, head of physiotherapy and occupational therapy, head of learning and development, paramedic lead for clinical leadership for the North West Ambulance Service, consultant nurse, senior social worker, assistant director of patient safety and infection control, as well as directors of nursing and matrons.The catalyst for its development was recognition that many health and social care workers ‘find themselves’ in leadership roles despite their lack of preparation or training for these enhanced roles.
