Leadership in Gerontology

Unit Code: HLQ639

Contact hours: 12–15 hours per week

Unit Description

In the challenging environment of the Aged Care sector, health practitioners caring for older Australians will be required to provide organisational leadership to ensure that services continue to evolve to meet changing community needs and service delivery challenges.

Such leadership requires the acquisition of knowledge and the development of capabilities in leadership to address current and future challenges, while building strong, respectful and meaningful relationships with older Australians and residents, their families and multidisciplinary staff teams.

As the capstone unit in the Master of Gerontology, this unit further develops your skills in addressing complex contemporary issues in gerontology and challenges you to critically evaluate your leadership capabilities and philosophy to prepare you to lead and advocate for improved Aged Care.
