CHR Graduate Certificate Program
The ACI's Centre for Healthcare Redesign (CHR) provides a state-wide graduate certificate program in redesign to support health professionals in achieving the Triple Aim of simultaneously improving the health of the population, enhancing the experience and outcomes of the patient, and reducing per capita cost of care for the benefit of communities.
Using proven Redesign methodology this course teaches staff how to identify the root causes of issues impacting patient journeys and then develop and implement sustainable change processes to improve the way health care is delivered.
Participants of the CHR Graduate Certificate program have the opportunity to gain an accredited qualification in affiliation with the University of Tasmania. For more information about the Grad Cert Program see Graduate Certificate Program Factsheet.
All participants within the Grad Cert will need to dedicate two days a week over 12 months to complete the requirements outlined in the program’s curriculum. You may want to consider applying for a HNE Health Innovation Scholarship to support participation in the Grad Cert program.
