ADVANCED ISSUES IN HEALTH AND WELLBEING RESEARCH
Credit points: 15
Students will study and analyse content presented in three main modules - Past, Present and Futures - and relate these to their Master or Doctoral research proposal through individual and class activities and assessment tasks. They will contextualise their research topic historically and in relation to contemporary and emerging trends and issues and future scenarios. Students will advance their understanding of population health and wellbeing paradigms, eras, grand challenges, key events, concepts, values, frameworks, systems, practices and tools. They will critically explore the roles of government and other institutions, healthcare and other sectors, various disciplines and professions and communities and citizens in public health analysis, advocacy and action. This subject is designed to complement research training subjects by providing continuous opportunities for students to further develop aspects of their research proposal, including its significance, key questions, methodology and ethical dimensions. Students will explore ways to optimise the relevance of their research project and its potential impact on people, environments and systems. To support their development as leaders in their profession, sector, organisation and/or field of practice, students will gain basic skills in futures literacy and professionalise their oral, written and audio-visual presentation skills in order to effectively communicate research to interdisciplinary audiences.
