In this subject you will be introduced to principles, practices and processes that influence business operations in health and community services, with particular emphasis on balancing consumer focus with commercial business decisions. The foundations of managing financial and human resources, as well as risk, will be explored and you will develop practical skills in planning, budgeting, resourcing, business writing and communication. In conjunction with the discipline theory, this subject introduces learning through practice by exposing you to authentic learning experiences. These experiences are placed at the centre of learning and assessment, so you have the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours necessary to respond to industry, community and/or global needs. You will be introduced to: - a range of methods, tools, techniques and approaches to practice - principles and perspectives such as values, ethics, empathy and leadership in real world scenarios - reflection and deliberative thinking as a means of developing knowledge, skills, attitudes and aspirations - ways of understanding problems and developing solutions through active inquiry.
