Duke-NUS’ Health Services and Systems Research (HSSR) Programme has launched the Graduate Certificate Programme in Health Services Innovation in a joint initiative with SingHealth.
“This course has been cooking up for a while, and was created through many months of hard work, discussions and assessments by the Directors, aimed at developing an impactful course on how to design and implement clinical innovation within our health system,” Duke-NUS Dean Professor Thomas Coffman said.
The specific objectives of the Graduate Certificate Programme are:
i) To build a sustainable training programme in health services innovation;
ii) To increase among Singaporean HCPs the skills and confidence for health services research;
iii) To train a workforce to identify opportunities for improvement, measure and improve patient outcomes, demonstrate and improve value for money, and implement evidence into practice sustainably.
The Graduate Certificate Programme in Health Services Innovation was approved by Ministry of Education in February 2020 to build capacity for innovation, build relationships with researchers and increase pressure for the promotion of high value services.
