Healthcare organisations are among the most complex in society today. Healthcare leaders are increasingly challenged to manage risk, uncertainty and ambiguity on a day-to-day basis, while at the same time having to effectively implement and manage change.

Thus, it will address the main issues and problems that you, as a healthcare professional, experience in terms recognising, assessing, managing and overcoming daily challenges. You will also emerge from this programme as a reflective practitioner, which should place you at the forefront of change and innovation in your organisation.
