Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.


This unit will build on Growing as a leader in Health (Unit 11587) and develop the learners' skills in resource planning allocation and priority setting. Practical real-world tasks will allow students to practice key skills in health resource allocation. This unit will culminate in an intensive face to face workshop which will consolidate theoretical concepts and enable learners to apply these concepts to practical scenarios.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Critically analyse and evaluate core and contemporary concepts and theories of health resource management;

2. Identify and discuss factors impacting on priority setting and budgeting using evidence based decision making frameworks;

3. Make ethical, socially responsible and sustainable business decisions in a complex health environment demonstrating a high level of personal autonomy and accountability; and

4. Communicate complex and difficult decisions as a manager and/or leader and as appropriate for different audiences.
