DDHA 8103 - Advanced Healthcare Quality and Risk Management


(5 cr.)
The focus of this course is on the development of leadership strategies and competencies to support healthcare and organizational quality and risk management. Emphasis is placed on a systems approach exploring the organizational structures that impact healthcare quality performance, risk management and, ultimately, patient outcomes. Using macro (enterprise-wide) and micro (individual and team performance) perspectives, students examine the leadership roles, which define, develop, and support decisions affecting quality strategies and risk management. Students in this course address how key organizational theories, principles, and concepts relate to achieving the effective and efficient delivery of safe healthcare services. Through the development of a quality program initiative, students demonstrate an understanding of the impact an initiative has on organizational structure, its environment, and the system’s leadership.
