Assignment question

The essay has a maximum word count of 2000 words (excluding the end reference list but including everything else) with the following title:

If you submitted an essay plan and received formative feedback this will provide you with an excellent framework for writing your essay.

Assignment Guidance

The following are examples of what you should consider in your essay:

  1. Define      the roles and responsibilities of healthcare managers in terms of skills      and applications within healthcare organisations. You may also like to      include a definition of an organisation. Remember that responsibilities      are to stakeholders and the organisation aims and objectives so these will      need to be analysed and discussed.

  2. Discuss      management skills and the challenges and barriers to implementing      strategies and carrying out the role day to day.

  3. Describe      management systems, strategies and processes for complying with organisational      policy, legislation and other regulatory and non- regulatory requirements      within healthcare contexts. 

Remember the essay format from the essay plan activity; use clear headings to signpost each section and ensure work is evidence-based throughout with correctly formatted citations and end references. 

You will draw on all unit concepts for this final essay and include a connection to management theory, principles and strategies.

Use Harvard Referencing.
