Course content includes:

  • healthcare funding
  • clinical costing methods
  • cost centre management and interpretation
  • operational budgeting
  • financial reporting
  • project planning and implementation
  • developing and presenting requests for capital expenditure

Who should attend?

This 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.
