HML401 Practising Health Management and Leadership with Resilience and Efficacy (4)

This subject draws on practice theory to contextualise and examine health management and leadership and to highlight the importance of these practices to health care. From this position, students consider their own health management and leadership practices, learn how to enact these with resilience and efficacy and how to make evidence-based decisions in a health care environment often characterised by competing demands and priorities.
