New MSc on Innovation in Health Care
Copenhagen Business School and The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen have developed the new MSc on ’Innovation in Health Care’. The programme is jointly organised by the two universities, and has accepted the first 50 students in September 2016.
Center for Health Management (CHM), has developed a course for the new health innovation programme, which will be coordinated by Anne Reff Pedersen and Susanne Boch Waldorff, members of the CBS Public Private Platform’s cluster on Health Governance, and the teachers of the course are a wide range of researchers from CHM and the PP Platform.
The course will take point of departure in a specific teaching case related to different organizational context conditions such as institutional, managerial and professional relationships. The case is based on a health innovation project from Herlev Hospital, where researching nurse Tove Lindhardt is introducing a new technology for hospitalised patients, which can create a better understanding of their nutritional conditions. Further, the technology should likewise help to improve the patients' ability to choose the hospital food they wish.
We talked to coordinator Anne Reff Pedersen about the development of the course: “It's really exciting to be able to build and offer a course that is close to the research interests of the CHM group. We work in the profession to convey theories and understandings of health innovation’s implementation processes, and we are looking at how different organizational context conditions affect the ability to transpose ideas in practice.”
