Health Management is considered an important skill area for Public Health professionals. The Health Management II module is thus included as one of the core modules of the Masters Degree in Public Health. The module covers three key management areas: change management, planning and resource management. The concept of change is a recurrent theme across the module. A second underlying theme is that managers continue to develop their skills through an ongoing process of reflective learning. The module presents management theories as well as a variety of perspectives and experiences for comparison with your own. As management is cross-cutting in relation to a number of other Public Health fields, you are also expected to relate much of the management study material to the contexts of the other modules.
