Health Management Research Plan BAA737


This unit provides students an opportunity to plan a translational research project addressing a contemporary healthcare management issue. Students will examine research theories and frameworks to be able to articulate and justify a rigorous research design. Students will develop skills for the effective management of research teams. This will include the ability to negotiate organisational priorities by identifying and developing networks for project implementation. Students are expected to utilise evidence from the literature to guide how they will undertake their research. Students will have opportunities to hear from experts across Australia and participate in industry case studies and analysis.

The translational research project must be approved by the relevant AIHSM course coordinator.
