Credit points: 45

Subject outline

In this subject, students gain practical experience, applying analytical and problem-solving strategies to real health care and public health problems using an action learning framework. This subject is a capstone subject for MHA, MPH and MESH students and an elective for a number of other public health degrees. Students complete an action learning project in public health, health promotion or health services management directed to improving health by integrating skills and knowledge gained in the postgraduate programs of the School of Psychology and Public Health and deepening skills in reflection, project management, planning and evaluation. 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. In the process, the students are supported to produce a conference poster and are encouraged to publish an article based on their work undertaken.
