HLED8280 Leadership Integrative Project
If you are in the Health Leadership, Health Care Quality Management, or Health Care Management Level 2 programs, you must complete the HLED8280 Leadership Integrative Project (formerly HMGT5800) as part of your program. By conducting a systematic review of major issues and best practices relating to a problem or opportunity in your workplace, you will develop appropriate alternatives and present a fully justified recommendation for solving the problem or advancing the opportunity. At the end of each milestone in the course, you will present a report and presentation to a panel comprised of a BCIT facilitator, a BCIT subject matter expert, and your organizational sponsor.
If you are intending to do the Leadership Integrated Project, and you are approaching the halfway point in your program, you should contact the Program Assistant and request access to the HLED 8280 online course material. After you review the material, you will be prepared to identify a suitable project topic.
BCIT Digital Collections – Health Care Management
Consider adding your HLED 8280 Leadership Integrated Project summary to the BCIT Digital Collections database.
- To submit your work, you will need to prepare a project catalogue form, sign a BCIT Non-Exclusive License for Digital Collection Submission of Student Works, confirm that the report is in the appropriate format (PDF), and get the approval of the Program Head. Contact the department for details.
Why add your project to the BCIT Digital Collections?
- HLED 8280 is an opportunity for you to integrate and apply your learning to a problem or opportunity in your workplace. This project can also support your career advancement, through creating visibility of your project in your organization and through your affiliation (as a student, and alumni) with BCIT’s Health Care Management department and the larger School of Health Sciences community. You will also be contributing to the process of knowledge translation for best practices health care leadership and management. Search engines such as Google give preferential treatment to materials in academic digital repositories and as a result, your report will be picked up by Google and will appear higher up on the Google results list.
Specialized industry training workshops are also available and can be specifically designed to meet the needs of your organization. Contact us for details.
Health care quality improvement: a Patient Safety Community of Practice
Faculty and students in the Health Care Quality Improvement Advanced Specialty Certificate program and members of the Western Health Care Improvement Network used a Community of Practice as a tool for communication and collaboration. The students gained practical knowledge by engaging with experts on real work problems and issues. Through the online community, learners were given the opportunity to develop relationships with those working in quality improvement in the provincial health authorities.
