To navigate, lead, and innovate within health systems, it is essential to understand how they are structured and operate. The key components of health systems, including health governance and funding arrangements, will be explored. You will be able to benchmark and analyse Australia’s health system in the context of international comparators, investigate the key drivers for health system improvement, and apply the components of health economics to critically evaluate and inform health decisions. You will explore the way in which the diverse population accesses the health system and evaluate the impact of the social determinants of health on health status.
