Overview


The purpose of the module is to equip students with the knowledge and skills to develop and extend their practice by contextualizing values, principles, and frameworks of care to influence improvements in quality and safety. In the module we will explore the context of health care practice nationally and globally and consider how practice is influenced and progressed within this context including the impact of self and barriers to effective change.
