In this subject, students tackle practical challenges at the cutting edge of health service design and management. Undertaking research in realistic and professionally relevant projects, students develop innovative solutions to the structure and management of a range of health services.
Students will work to develop and refine their knowledge of the major structural and functional components of healthcare systems by examining the Australian system. By understanding how health systems and other service provision models develop, evolve and perform, students acquire a foundation for leading and influencing the direction of health care.
Working on a challenge brief from a portfolio of health sector projects, students conduct valuable research and generate meaningful solutions for the sector. The projects share a common focus on the changing relationships between healthcare providers, the insurance sector, government and the wider community. Industry partners may include public, private, primary and tertiary care as well as payers, providers and suppliers.
