THE SERVICE USER PERSPECTIVE IN HEALTH CARE
Credit points: 15
In this subject, students focus on the development and implementation of client-centred services for people with disability or chronic illness. Students are given the opportunity to explore disability and chronic illnes from the perspective of the person with the disability or chronic illness and how this perspective can be reflected in effective support services. Content is organised into three modules: (i) client related psychological and social dimensions of disability and chronic illness, and their relationship to effective service provision, (ii) self-management models of service delivery: theoretical approaches, strategies and interventions which factilitate involvement of the person in the management of their own condition, and (iii) the service user as a consumer: models and strategies regarding service user participation in health service planning and delivery. This subject is available only in distance education mode.
