Lectures and flipped classroom
Interactive lectures from keynote speakers and clinicians (shared with mental health nursing students) will introduce the principles, concepts and models of leadership, quality improvement and governance. Online learning objects, including videos from managers, leaders and people with lived experience, will be used to prepare students for lecture activities.
Opportunities to apply the principles to a series of field specific case studies in action learning sets (both face to face and virtual) will be co-facilitated by clinicians and academic staff who hold, or have held, clinical leadership roles.
Opportunities will be offered for students to participate in simulated activities to rehearse leadership activities in complex and ambiguous situations, in the safety of a simulated environment.
Differentiation from level 6
Approximately 80% of this level 7 variant of HS198 will be co-delivered with students following a level 6 variant, where there is shared, field-specific learning required to achieve the professional standards of proficiency and learning outcomes. 20% of contact hours will be delivered separately to level 6 and level 7 students, where level 7 students will focus specifically on advanced and critical reflection on the application and implementation of leadership frameworks aligned to learning outcomes.
