Credit points: 30

Subject outline

This year long subject is the capstone subject for China Health Program MHA students, enabling them to complete an action research project in public health, health promotion and health services management directed towards improving health. Students gain practical experience applying analytical and problem-solving strategies to health care issues through a major project, using an action learning framework. This subject integrates skills and knowledge gained in other subjects and deepens skills in reflection, project management and planning and evaluation, enabling students to ultimately make an impact on community health. The concept of reflective practice is applied and students have the opportunity to examine their styles and practice, consider their development needs and how they might ensure ongoing learning throughout their careers. The students are supported in the process to publish an article from the work done in this subject.
