Despite positive changes in society’s view of women’s health in the recent years, we are still far from where we need to be on the issue – 44% of women in Australia can’t afford a doctor when they need one, and this number increases to 70% for women from non-English speaking backgrounds, 62% for women with a disability, 53% for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and 57% for LGBTQIA+ (ref: Jean Hailes, 2022).
The Master of Women’s and Children’s Health from UTS Online, a first qualification of its kind, will allow you to focus on women’s and children’s specific health needs and make a difference where it counts.
This course looks at the unique and individual needs of women and children, including reproductive health, pregnancy, motherhood and menopause, while giving you the knowledge and skills to deliver high-quality, culturally appropriate and accessible care to all Australians.
By absorbing contemporary material that focuses on current issues, you will learn all about current issues in women’s and children’s healthcare globally, how to deal with legal and ethical issues in women’s health, how to manage social healthcare and all about indigenous public health.
By the end of the course you will have developed fundamental health research, policy making and healthcare management skills and knowledge that will allow you to actively take part in improving the women’s and children’s healthcare offering in Australia.
