This assessment task is aligned to the following learning objectives:
Objective 3 – critically analyse and evaluate a range of skills and attributes relevant to being an effective health service manager
Objective 6 – incorporate the principles of justice and equity into planning and management of health services
Share your experiences of a strategic health issue that you have observed in a workplace organisation you have worked in or are familiar with, on the discussion board in Week 1 in PERCI. Comments must be substantial and refer to the learnings of the unit to support the points made in your post.
To complete this assessment, you must both post a reply to the discussion board question, and reply to one other post from your peers, as below:
1. Post to the class discussion board (300 words)
- Discuss one key issue that is strategic for your own health sector and/or particular work setting (this can be also hypothetical).
- Provide a rationale/justification about why the identified issue is strategic. Turn to the recommended readings listed, to give you some idea of the parameters of strategic issues.
- What are the key drivers/consequences of the strategic issue? Drivers of the strategic issue can be considered from a holistic point of view (e.g. different factors at
different levels, such as issues related to consumers/staff satisfaction, managerial/organizational issues, etc.).
