To effectively navigate, work in, and improve health systems, it is essential to understand how they are structured and operate. In this subject, you will learn about the building blocks of the Australian health system to understand how it works, who the key players are, how decisions on resources allocation are made, and identify contemporary health system challenges. You will measure how well Australia’s health system is working to improve population health and contrast it to selected international comparators. To promote equitable health systems, you will explore the way in which the diverse population interacts with and accesses health services.
