Rozelle - Sydney
This unit offers an introduction to the practice of evidence informed decision making in health organisation management and research. Students will develop the skills to critically appraise scientific evidence to inform and improve decision-making. The relationship between managerial epidemiology and concepts such as the social determinants of health, and the distribution and determinants of diseases and other factors relating to health will be explored. Students will improve their ability to identify and assess relevant literature and evidence used in management and research activities. Students will demonstrate the ability to conceptualise and communicate the operational and strategic issues associated with the ethical, and political implications of evidence informed managerial decisions. Students will have opportunities to hear from experts across Australia and participate in industry case studies and analysis.
