De-mystifying the numbers – Understanding financial concepts in healthcare


This two-day workshop has been specifically designed to provide healthcare professionals with the opportunity to develop a sound understanding of the key financial issues facing the healthcare system.

Content will include healthcare funding, clinical costing methods, cost centre management and interpretation, operational budgeting, financial reporting, project planning and implementation, and developing and presenting requests for capital expenditure.

The course will comprise a combination of short technical sessions, supplemented by explanatory case studies designed to reinforce learning from a practical ‘hands on’ perspective.

Who should attend?

The course will be of particular interest to clinical staff contemplating a move into supervisory and/or management where an understanding of the ‘numbers’ is extremely important.

The course will also be of interest to those considering further studies as it will provide a taste of the sort of material likely to be covered in a postgraduate course in healthcare management.
