4. THE INDIVIDUAL NATURE OF A PROJECT
The award of a Master’s degree indicates that you have completed a substantial piece of professional and individual work on a health care management subject at a high level.
4.1. You and Your Project Supervisor
• The role of the Project Supervisor
You will be allocated a Project Supervisor whose role will be to offer you strategic guidance during in the development of your management project and the coursework.
The Project Supervisor will act as a guide and ensure that you are aware of the quality of your work and progress (or lack of it). The Project Supervisor will give formative feedback and be responsible for the first marking of the project.
The Project Supervisor will be responsible for reviewing and approving your CU Ethics application for the systematised literature review part of the project.
Support will be offered via online or face-to-face, individual or small group tutorial meetings once every two weeks, booked in advance, between you and your Project Supervisor.
A key to the success of any programme lies in the relationship that is established between you and your Project Supervisor. Therefore regular contact with, and feedback from your Project Supervisor will be a major factor in ensuring that you successfully complete the project. For this reason a clearly defined timetable for supervision meetings should be agreed together with a schedule for your Supervisor to review draft work. This timetable may need to be revised as the project proceeds.
You should follow these simple guidelines to ensure that you get the most from each meeting with your Project Supervisor:
• Book appointments with the Project Supervisor in good time
• Send an agenda of issues for discussion, together with any relevant draft work before the meeting, allowing time for the tutor to read it beforehand
• The meetings will take a ‘coaching approach’ to facilitate the development of the project and overcoming challenges
• To follow up the meeting, prepare a brief action plan and send a copy to your Project Supervisor
Once the focus of your project has been agreed you should work closely with your Project Supervisor. However, remember that you will be the primary author of your project and your Project Supervisor will offer guidance and advice. He or she will encourage and challenge you, offering constructive criticism in order for you to gain a deeper understanding of the subject in an attempt to enhance the final outcome.
• Student Expectations
You can expect your Project Supervisor to:
• Have an understanding of your general chosen project area
• Be familiar with what makes an acceptable project
• Be supportive and helpful – but honest, offering constructive and critical feedback!
• Read draft work sent in advance of meetings (usually at least 24 hours)
• Be available for appointments that are arranged in advance
• Be informed if the booked appointment needs to be cancelled or rearranged
• Offer appropriate information and suggested reading
• Give up to 10 hours support
10 hours will go a long way if you send the Project Supervisor, in advance, an agenda and any draft work for comment.
• Project Supervisors Expectations
The Project Supervisor will expect you to:
• Keep in contact with them
• Be organised and follow an action plan
• Maintain a Contact Log (see appendix 3) and Reflective journal
• Be an independent learner and think for yourself, utilising the guidance offered in this document and from your Project Supervisor
• Prepare for supervision by setting an agenda for the meeting
• Take and consider the advice offered by your Project Supervisor
• Be honest when reporting feedback on your progress, whether positive or negative
• Be interested in the work for its own sake rather than just to get a qualification
Ultimately as a student you are responsible for:
• Planning and managing your time and workload in order to complete the coursework by the submission date, giving due consideration to the background work/ research required for each of the sections
• Undertaking an analysis of the health care management problem, using relevant management tools to identify the specific issue the project will focus on
• Undertaking a scoping review of the academic literature to determine the feasibility of the project
• Completing an CU ethics application and gaining ethical approval for the systematised literature review of the project
• Completing the systematised literature review following using a clear and structured methods, that are documented and summarised using the PRISMA flow diagram (downloaded: http://www.prisma-statement.org/PRISMAStatement/FlowDiagram)
• Undertaking the background work required for each section of the Project Dissertation.
• Drafting, editing, proof-reading the each section of the project in producing the final Dissertation
• Presenting the Project Dissertation in an approved format (see below)
Please note: The Project Supervisor will not read endless drafts of different sections of the project, but will read parts of these to provide formative feedback. When submitting these to your Supervisor, please allow 48 hours response. The Project Supervisor will not read through the final written draft of the project before submission.
Many Project Supervisors take annual leave during the Easter holiday, so you will need to take this into account when scheduling meetings.
What to do if things ‘go wrong’
Occasionally things will go wrong between a student and their Project Supervisor.
Your first point of contact should always be to your Project Supervisor by a visit, email or letter stating what you believe to be the problem. It is expected that good communication and subsequent discussion will resolve the issue in the majority of cases.
- the Project Supervisor does not respond within a five working days (subject to them not being absent from the University) and you are unable to contact them, or
- discussion with your Project Supervisor have not resolved the issue to your satisfaction, please discuss your concerns with the Head of School.
5. PROJECT FORMAT
All projects must contain the following (this is not meant to be a list of required chapter headings, but rather a checklist of items that must somewhere be covered)
• Outside front cover (see appendix 1 for the template)
• Title page (see appendix 2 for the template)
• Table of Contents
• Glossary of Key Terms & abbreviations
• Reference list of sources, cited using CU Harvard Reference style
• Numbered and labelled appendices
6. COURSEWORK ASSESSMENT

7. PROJECT GUIDANCE
The Management Project (General) provides an opportunity for you to draw on, and demonstrate, your learning of management theory from all the modules you have studied across the programme.
It will enable you to demonstrate your understanding of project management and the tasks of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria.
A comprehensive evidence-based ‘business’ proposal to take to a Board / management committee that makes the case for introducing a new service, service improvement or the introduction of an innovation or technology for the benefit of patient/ service user care or employee welfare. The proposal should use evidence from the academic literature to critically argue and justify the rationale for the implementation or change.
Remember this is a desk-based project and not a proposal for an empirical study and does not require you to collect primary data
For ethical reasons, all proposals should aim to benefit the population/ customers/ service users of the organisation or staff employed by that organisation, providing some justification for its implementation
• Criteria Application Framework
1 Proposal Title The title should be clear, concise and reflect/capture the essence of the project and/or project focus, identifying the organisational issue and proposed solution/ action. The title should clearly indicate the nature of the project, that it is a ‘business’ case for a new service or service improvement, innovation or technology. It should not be the title used for the CU ethics application
2. Organisation Details of the type of organisation to which this proposal is being pitched (anonymised) with some contextualisation, demographics of the population it serves. Please confirm if you have used a pseudonym.
3 Executive summary, to include the main aim and total funding of the project.
The Executive Summary should provide an overview of the proposal.
It is usually a condensed version of the content of the main report, summarising the major sections, typically written once it has been completed. It should indicate what the main report is about, why it is important, what is included, recommending a specific course of action/ solution and its feasibility.
The executive summary should include the main aim of the proposal, which should be clear and succinct and an outline of the total proposed funding for the life of the project with proposed timeframe, linked with the funding breakdown identified in section 10, specifying the unit of currency.
The Executive Summary should be submitted to the assessors at the beginning of the viva voce assessment.
4 Acknowledgements Give credit to anyone who has been of specific help to you in the development and preparation of your project. It should be remembered that anonymity and confidentiality should be maintained. It is usual practice to acknowledge the support of your Project supervisor, but also might include the subject librarian and other university staff
5 Table of Contents The Table of Contents should enable the reader to easily navigate your project. It lists, in sequence, with page numbering, all relevant headings and subheadings of the report, including the title of chapters, sections and subsections. All appendices should be listed and named.
A separate list of figures/tables should be included, where relevant.
6 Glossary of Terms The glossary should provide definitions of key terms used, common terminology, abbreviations and acronyms used within the proposal report. Definitions that you have included should be referenced. Remember that over-use of abbreviations and acronyms in the main body of the project can be a barrier to the flow and understanding of your writing.
7 Introduction and context of the Proposal
Outline how this section will be structured in your opening paragraph. This section should essentially provide the justification for the proposed change, a detailed background and context, clearly identifying the management problem or issue of concern. It should set the scene in terms of its importance to health care management in a global context, providing a rationale for your proposed recommendation. You will need to consider strategic drivers (international, national, local), policy and strategy documents and research studies and their findings in focussing and contextualising the topic.
This section should also consider the ethics, by considering the benefits of addressing the problem (and proposed solution) and the disbenefits or harms of not addressing it.
It is important that you demonstrate a structured approach to analysing, defining and quantifying the health care management problem as this is likely to lead to the development of a clearer and targeted solution. It will need to consider why the issue exists, from a range of perspectives, such as ethical, cultural, technical, environmental etc. You will need to use management tools and theory to analyse the underlying cause of the issue, rather than just the consequences, for example a Cause and Effect Analysis, Business Process Re-engineering (BPR) 20 questions and/ or PEST(LE) analysis, justifying their use.
The Board/ management committee to which this project proposal is being pitched will require information on the feasibility of the project and its benefits, addressing the following:
- Is the proposed solution affordable and cost effective?
- Is the proposed solution technically possible?
- Is the proposed solution ethical?
- Will the proposed solution deliver the outcomes you are proposing in the proposed time frame?
This section should end with a clear Statement of the Problem to be addressed
8 Theoretical Background Literature review
(for which CU ethical approval has been gained)
Outline how this section will be structured in your opening paragraph and may include the aims and objectives identified in your CU ethics application for the literature review
The following section of the literature review must outline your methods for completing the systematised literature review, the approach and strategy employed to locate the academic literature, relevant to the topic with justification. Within the appendices you should include full details of the search terms, Boolean operators, databases used, hand searching and citation tracking inclusion/exclusion criteria along with evidence of critical appraisal and tools used. You must only use articles published in English for this section
In order to discover and critically examine what knowledge and ideas have been established on the management issue and potential solutions that you are focussing on, a systematic approach to searching for and critically appraising and synthesising the relevant academic literature/ materials is required. This requires you to use the literature search skills developed in previous modules and appraisal skills required in 7118SOH Evidence-based Practice and Research Principles to locate and critique relevant research articles related to your topic. In order to enhance your search skills, it might be wise to seek a tutorial with the subject librarian, Maria King.
The literature search and review should be sufficiently comprehensive to enable you to develop focus, and to formulate, the project aim and objectives. It will need to consider the evidence for other possible solutions that have been employed previously and the applicability to the issue identified and its context (considering strengths, weaknesses and their appropriateness to the problem identified).
The literature review It should demonstrate your skills of critical analysis and synthesis and is usually shaped like a funnel, addressing topics broadly that inform the project at the beginning, becoming more focussed as it progresses, ending with a summary statement of what is known and not known that justify the need for the project, logically leading on to your aim, project objectives (in the next section).
Your literature review needs to:
i. provide an overview of the search strategy employed
ii. be organised around and related directly to the precise topic of focus
iii. demonstrate your ability to critically appraise, evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of the academic literature reviewed (primary research articles), using relevant tools, determining its quality
iv. synthesise the information, knowledge and evidence in order to provide an appropriate and relevant summary.
The use of headings within this section is helpful in signposting the reader.
9 Implementation Plan - Aim, objectives/ Success criteria
For this section, your aim and objectives will emerge directly from the definition and quantification of the organisational issue. You will need to clearly and succinctly state the project aim and objectives, defining the Project objectives using SMART language1 in terms of outputs, outcomes and benefits, or success criteria
NB The project aim and objectives will focus on implementation of the project plan and must therefore be different to those identified on your CU Ethics application (which are about what you intend to find in the literature review)
Aims often start with To... and describe the changes you are trying to achieve. The aims need to relate to the problem and proposed solution and align with the project title
Objectives are how you are going to achieve this (the activity and relate to the operationalistion of the project plan
Outputs are what you expect the project to 'produce'
*Objectives should be written using SMART1 language. It is the quality of the written objectives that is important (rather than the quantity)
1 S = Specific, M = Measurable, A = Achievable, R = Realistic or Relevant and T = Timely.
Project objectives can also be framed as success criteria.
Please note that these objectives should be used at the end of your project in order to evaluate its success (see section 12)
10 Implementation Plan/ Project Milestones
Outline how this section will be structured in your opening paragraph.
This section will demonstrate your understanding of relevant theory and tools in constructing a Project Plan that is realistic and feasible. You might want to structure this section using subheadings that address initiation and planning activities, executing, controlling, and closing the work. This section may benefit from evaluating the proposed solution using, for example a SWOT analysis, identifying potential obstacles and challenges that may be faced. It should include a ‘time line’ illustrating the different stages of the project plan and schedule of tasks and activities showing target dates and project milestones.
Key to this section is a critical discussion and justification of the implementation plan, including team building, stakeholder analysis and engagement (primary, secondary and key stakeholders), communication strategies, change management, risk management and mitigation. Use the principles of beneficence, non-maleficence, fairness and autonomy to determine the ethics of implementing the project.
11 Breakdown of Financial Costs / Rationale for Funding requirements
Outline how this section will be structured in your opening paragraph.
This section is key to the Board/ management committee in considering the proposal, as Board members will need to evaluate whether it is feasible, affordable and cost effective. An outline of all financial costs associated with the proposal is therefore required, presented as a table for all stages of the project and for all activities. This may include proposed staff salaries, any training costs, equipment needed, maintenance etc.
Key to this section is a critical commentary and justification for why the funding is needed, possibly including a cost-benefit analysis, health-benefit analysis, and consideration of the costs and benefits to the organisation. It may include some consideration of alternative sources of funding (either internally or externally) and why it cannot be sourced elsewhere or within existing budgets.
12 Evaluation Plan
Monitoring Implementation and Evaluating success
Outline how this section will be structured in your opening paragraph
This section required a critical discussion on how the implementation of the project will be monitored and success/outcomes of the project will be measured/evaluated against its objectives.
An evaluation plan is a roadmap in monitoring the implementation of the proposal and achieving the overall aim. It identifies the goals at different stages of the project and ways in which data will be collected and analysed. This includes what information will be collected, along with how, where and when it will be collected. It identifies the data collection methods, those responsible for carrying out the plan, timelines and budget.
There are five main stages to an evaluation plan:
- Clarifying the project objectives and goals
- Developing evaluation questions
- Developing evaluation methods
- Setting up a timeline for evaluation activities
- Reporting mechanisms on progress to include interim and final reports and other methods for disseminating the findings to stakeholders
13 Mainstreaming the project
A critical discussion on the project exit strategy, what happens at the end of the project related to the overall aim. If successful how will the proposal be embedded into the organisation, how will the results of the research be disseminated more widely.
It should consider the ethics of the mainstreaming the project, discussing the benefits to the organisation and health gains for individuals.
A critical commentary on the sustainability of the project proposal and /or project management including future sources of funding. If successful, how will the proposed solution be maintained once the life of the project has ended
Any future potential recommendations that emerge directly from the project should be included.
Using a reflective model, such as Gibbs Reflective cycle (1988) or Rolfe et al Reflective model (2001) critically examine the development of your personal learning and professional skills that has occurred through your engagement with the professional experience project and how these developments will impact your future employability. The model of reflection you have used should be clearly evident in the way this section is structured. Rather than generalising the learning from the project, consider a few aspects in depth, such as your ability to locate and appraise relevant evidence or time management skills.
15 Reference List Use the CU Harvard Style or CU APA style.
This referencing method should be consistently and accurately applied throughout the project.
The reference list should be in alphabetical order according to author.
It is vital, when proof reading your work to ensure that all sources that appear in the text are also represented in the reference list and vice versa. Please ensure that any secondary sources are accurately attributed and are not misleading
16 Appendices, numbered and labelled Your appendices must include:
(1) a copy of your certificate of ethical approval and
(2) a worked example of the critical appraisal tool you have used, providing the full citation of the article appraised
Appendices contain additional materials that support the written proposal i.e. charts, graphs, tables, extracts, photographs. If, however, any of these are crucial to the understanding of the main text then it should be placed where directly relevant. You must signpost your reader to the appendices from the main text.
For transparency, one of your appendices must demonstrate evidence of a systematic approach to searching the literature, clearly describing methods employed in locating the academic literature and relevant materials included within the literature review. It should identify dates of searches, key words used, MESH terms and Boolean operators employed, names of electronic databases in searching the literature, along with any hand searching and citation tracking. Inclusion/ exclusion criteria (search parameters) applied to the search should be explicit. The use of the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses) flowchart diagram (http://www.prisma-statement.org/PRISMAStatement/FlowDiagram) will aid the transparency of the process in locating the relevant literature.
Once located, you must include evidence of critical appraisal using relevant tools, a worked example of the critical appraisal tool you have used, such as CASP (Critical Appraisal Skills Programme), determining the quality of the literature that has been included?
• Assessment criteria
Your work will be marked on its quality and achievement of the intended module learning outcomes. A key feature will be the demonstration of your ability to work with creativity and originality using knowledge and insights into the area of study and to effectively integrate skills of analysis, synthesis and evaluation. The written project proposal will be marked against the above criteria framework and the postgraduate assessment criteria (appendix 4).
• Referencing and list of references
The CU (Coventry University) Harvard style or APA style is to be used for citations and the list of references. Place all references collectively at the end of the written proposal. Include only references that have been cited.
CU Harvard system https://libguides.coventry.ac.uk/cuharvard or
CU APA system https://libguides.coventry.ac.uk/apa
• Word count
The length of the written management project proposal is 9,000 (±10%). Please see (3) Projects are Professional Documents on which sections of the report are included and excluded in the word count.
If the total word count exceeds the allowed + 10% margin (i.e. 9,900 words) then a penalty will be applied. This will result in the mark awarded being reduced by 10%.
You will need to decide how best to use the allocated 9,000 words. Please note, however, the following guidelines:
• Sections 1, 2 and 3 –these sections provide an outline of the proposed project and should aim to capture the interest of the executive board or funding committee
• Section 7 - Introduction Background and Context of the Proposal: this section introduces the topic and provides the context to the project, its importance with clear justification and should account for approximately 1000 words
• Section 8 – Literature Review: this section should account for approximately 3000 - 3500 words, demonstrating critical evaluation of relevant literature and evidence of solutions.
• Sections 9 – 13 - Project Aim, Objectives/ Success Criteria, Implementation Plan/ Project Milestones, Outline of and Rationale for Financial Costs, Evaluation Plan, Mainstreaming the Project: these sections provide the detail of the project proposal and implementation and should account for approximately 3000 – 3500 words
• Section 14 – Reflexivity: aim for 700-1000 words
Appendices contain additional materials that support the written proposal i.e. charts, graphs, tables, extracts, photographs. If, however, any of these is crucial to the understanding of the main text then it should be placed in the main body of the report where directly relevant.
8. MITIGATING CIRCUMSTANCES
Please note that if you are unable to submit the coursework by the submission deadline then you may be eligible to apply for a deferral. Please refer to the Extenuating circumstances guidance for students at the following link:
9. PLAGIARISM AND CHEATING
There is always a great temptation for some students to pass off other people’s published work as their own and so commit plagiarism. There is difficulty in defining plagiarism but if examiners find sentences and paragraphs copied directly from books and journals, or another student’s work, then a prima facia case of plagiarism will be investigated. The University takes this very seriously and if the case is proven then it is highly likely that the student’s work will be failed. It can result in expulsion from the University. To avoid this you should remember that:
• It is legitimate to summarise/ paraphrase the ideas of others from a range of source material (books, journal articles, documents etc.) provided that you use your own words. When doing so, you should reference your primary source.
• If you do use phrases, sentences or paragraphs from published sources within your text, then always place them inside inverted commas/ quotation marks to indicate that they are direct quotes, accompanied with the intext citation identified and full citation listed alphabetically in the reference list.
Your written project must be your own work. Copying from any other source, without acknowledgement, constitutes plagiarism. Please refer to the essential information within your Student Postgraduate Handbook (located on the Student Portal https://students.coventry.ac.uk/HLS/Pages/PoliciesandProcedures.aspx) for further information
Turnitin is set up on the module web (Aula) so that you can independently check drafts of your academic work for plagiarism before submission. To use this facility please submit your draft work through the TURNITIN DRAFT SUBMISSION AREA.
Please note that Turnitin will compare your work with material on the world- wide- web including the academic work of other students. It is very important that you do not cut and paste material from the web and other sources.
10. CONFIDENTIALITY – FACULTY STATEMENT
It is good practice in your written work to never disclose a person’s name as this may be considered a breach of confidentiality. Where an assessed piece of work requires the use of information of an individual’s personal case details, in a health or social care context, every reasonable effort must be made to ensure the data is appropriately anonymised. Anonymised data is where the personal information is included from which the person cannot be identified by the recipient. This includes any information collected from written or electronic records, details of a client’s case, opinions, images or recordings.
When a breach of confidentiality is noted in the coursework, a deduction of 10% will be deducted from the final grade.
11. SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS – FACULTY STATEMENT
The Faculty of Health and Life Sciences wishes to provide every student with the best conditions possible in order to take control of their learning experience and to maximise their opportunities to flourish educationally within an academic environment. This means making changes to provision where possible in order to remove any educational hindrance caused by specific physical or psychological needs.
The Special Educational Needs Disability Act (SENDA) requires that institutions do not, even inadvertently, place any student at a substantial disadvantage in their learning experience. Tutors wish to support this provision and therefore we ask that you make known to us, as soon as possible, any perceived potential disadvantage that you feel you may experience in the learning environment and assessment processes of the Subject Group.
We recognise that some people find it is difficult for them to disclose appropriate information and so we ask that you use one of several paths open in order to inform us, of your needs. This could be through your personal tutor, module leader or course director or through any member of staff you feel comfortable with or through Student Services, the Disability Office or the Faculty Learner Support Facilitator. The sooner we are made aware the sooner we can provide for specific requirements.
If you have a disability or medical condition and need adjustment to allow you to fully participate in this module (e.g. different forms of handout) please inform so that suitable arrangements can be made.
12. SUBMITTING YOUR PROJECT DISSERTATION
An electronic copy of the final 9,000 word project dissertation should be submitted via the final submission link on the 7053SOH Aula web no later than 1800 on Wednesday 11th August 2021. Variations in word count are acceptable up to 10% in accordance with standard University policy.
By submitting your project through the Submission link on the Module web you are confirming that the coursework is your own work.
13. LATE SUBMISSION OR NON-SUBMISSION
In the event that you submit later than the submission deadline (after 1800 on the stated submission date) without an approved extension or deferral you will be awarded a mark of 0%. You will however, at the discretion of the Subject Assessment Board, be eligible for a re-sit attempt at the next available opportunity.
Please refer to the Postgraduate Student Handbook for further information by clicking on the following hyperlink https://students.coventry.ac.uk/HLS/Pages/PoliciesandProcedures.aspx.
14. WHO WILL MARK YOUR COURSEWORK?
Your project proposal will be marked by at least two tutors. The first marker will normally be your Project Supervisor. The second marker will normally be an academic who has some expertise in the subject area but has not been involved in the close supervision of your work. The two markers will act independently of each other and discuss how the project submitted has demonstrated achievement of the learning outcomes and agree the mark to be awarded using the HLS Faculty Postgraduate Assessment Marking Criteria (Appendix 3). The external examiner for the module will view a sample of the coursework submitted. These processes are put in place to protect both students and staff from the influences of bias.
The percentage mark awarded and feedback comments will normally be available through Grademark within ten working days following submission.
Please refer to the reading lists provided for all modules you have studied as part of the course, including the reading list outlined in the 7053SOH module guide. This will provide you with a broad range of reading material that should assist you in successfully completing the module coursework.
