EFN423 Health Economics: Applications and Policy

This unit provides a strategic overview of economics as applied to the health sector. The unit develops a set of skills with applications to health and financial management decision-making principles and processes. After developing an understanding of basic economic concepts you will learn to apply this knowledge to financial management in Australian and international health care settings. This will include a discussion and analysis of health evaluation. Economics aids in making better informed and logically coherent decisions. The unit will equip emerging health managers with skills and theory to enable them to effectively manage resources and the associated financial implications for their area or department.
