This unit will develop students' broad understanding of the different approaches to health (e.g. biomedical, psychological, sociological). This would include understanding the different factors which impact health; how different approaches may lead to different strategies for developing and evaluating health solutions; and different ways of measuring health. Students are then enabled to consider how these different approaches to health are reflected in health systems, both locally and internationally. Students will explore different healthcare systems locally and internationally, whilst gaining knowledge of current and future challenges for health systems and health policy in Australia and abroad.
