Anti-requisite(s): 92638 Foundations of the Australian Healthcare System



In this subject, students 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 case scenario, students will examine the structure, functions, delivery and challenges of the Australian healthcare system and its impact on health outcomes, across different population groups. 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.
