Rozelle - Sydney


The unit examines internal and external factors that shape individual, group and organisational behaviours in healthcare. Using management theory, students will scrutinise how the operation of healthcare organisations is determined by stakeholder expectations. Students will investigate critical organisational issues including attitudes, satisfaction, motivation, leadership and power, transparency, culture and climate. Students will critically appraise how stakeholder expectations manifest into organisational behaviours, organisational performance and clinical outcomes. Students will have opportunities to hear from experts across Australia and participate in industry case studies and analysis.
