This post graduate course focuses on health policy from the perspectives of history, development, critical analysis, application and review. It will enable the student to explain how health policies are developed and how they impact on both the delivery and the receipt of health care. Students will be guided in how to conduct a critical evaluation and review of a health policy utilising a Policy Analysis Framework and the application in practice of recommendations through local procedures, guidelines or implementation strategies. Using this analysis, students will then develop recommendations to improve the structure and application of the policy to health care outcomes.
