The unit is designed to consolidate the theoretical and practical skills acquired in the Master of Health Services Management. It is intended to integrate previous material covered in the course by providing students with the opportunity to explore in detail a complex problem within their workplace or within a health care setting.
Alternatively, subject to the approval of the course coordinator, students may seek a limited placement in a health service to explore a particular issue for their case-study. This may include an overseas placement.
The case-study is not intended to be original research. In some instances, this case study might be suitable for submission as the case-study for the Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators (RACMA) Fellowship.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
- identify an issue or a problem of health service management importance;
- critically review and evaluate the literature related to an important health service management issue in their workplace;
- integrate theory, knowledge and practice in their examination and appraisal of an important health service management issue in their workplace;
- demonstrate an ability to reflect on issues and alternative management actions;
- describe and justify appropriate health services management action;
- demonstrate skills in writing up an assessment of an important health service management issue in a professional report.
