To navigate, lead and innovate within health systems, it is essential to understand how these systems are structured and operate. This subject will consider the broad socioeconomic contexts, organisational frameworks and funding arrangements of Australian and selected international health systems. The way in which the diverse population interacts with and uses healthcare services will be explored to promote equitable systems. Graduates of this subject will be able to compare and understand health systems, and the factors affecting patient access and outcomes.
