This broad unit introduces students to the interrelationship between health law and ethics, strategic planning, financial resource management and health policy development. It aims to help students develop a clear understanding of the dynamics of the healthcare environment and the importance of a partnership approach amongst health and human service agencies. It provides managers with the tools to analyse change and develop effective strategies for managing in a rapidly changing healthcare environment and influencing system change.

Participants are expected to draw on relevant empirical and theoretical work as well as reflecting on their own workplace and lived experience as they investigate and deepen their understanding of health and human service management.
