Description This unit extends the theoretical concepts introduced in the unit, Health Politics, Policy and Planning with an emphasis on practical application and obtaining skills in health project management. It concentrates on the development of project management skills required for comprehensive assessment, planning and implementation of health programs or projects. The unit is designed so that students work collaboratively as a multidisciplinary team to develop and manage a workplace health planning project, on a current health issue identified by the health industry. Students thus develop knowledge of skills in project management, stakeholder negotiation, intergroup dynamics, committee structure and functioning, project consultation and planning and management with a deliverable outcome (report).
