PUBH6003 Health Systems and Economics: Health Financing

PUBH6003 Health Systems and Economics:  Health Financing thumbnail



Healthcare financing incorporates how funds are mobilised (raising revenue), accumulated (pooling) and allocated (purchasing) to deliver health services to individuals and population groups.

Health systems cannot function without funding: reliable channels of funding are important to ensure that a health system is equitable, and that individual healthcare costs do not cause financial harm.

  • Revenue raising ensures that there is money and ensures sustainability.
  • Pooling spreads the financial risk across the population to ensure equity and efficacy.
  • Allocation mechanisms used to pay for health services ensures services/medicines and technology.

Health financing also ensures the appropriate setting of financial incentives for the payment of health providers. Ultimately, health financing helps health systems to achieve their goals, such as health outcomes/gains, equity in the provision of health services, system efficacy and responsiveness. These key indicators are used to monitor and evaluate the health financing mechanisms adopted by different countries. Thus, knowledge of health financing will help you to understand the extent to which health system goals are achievable (or not) in a given context.

This assessment is designed to encourage teamwork and collaboration. The assessment requires you to engage in extensive research and undertake a critical analysis to craft clear and strategic evidence-based arguments to support your stance: a key skill in public health advocacy and policy development.

Assessment Task

Your group will be provided with a topic and the stance that you will be required to argue. Critically evaluate your topic for debate (in essence, writing a position paper).Consider the pros and cons for the achievement of the health system’s goals: the health outcomes (health gain), equity in health and finance, financial protection and the responsiveness of the system.

LG566 International Law and Conflict: Irish Legal System

LG566 International Law and Conflict: Irish Legal System thumbnail


In his book, The Constitution of Ireland: A Contextual Analysis, Oran Doyle refers to a “waning influence of natural law”1 in Irish constitutional interpretation. He goes on to state that: [o]ver time, the courts have reconstructed many provisions influenced by natural law into more typical liberal democratic provisions.
This can be seen both through explicit judicial dicta and the gradual move of the courts’ case law to a set of positions that cohere as effectively with general liberal democratic ideas as with any natural law ethos. There is also a marked change in judicial language, as judges come to reflect the increasingly post-Catholic character of the society from which they are drawn.2 In continuation, Doyle gives some examples of dwindling explicit reliance on natural law theory in Irish constitutional interpretation.
With reference to the quotation above, provide a critical account of the natural law theories examined in the module and critically analyse their continued influence on the Irish legal system, in your answer, you may draw upon other jurisprudential theories, case law, the constitution, legislation, or other materials to justify your response.

SITXCCS002 Provide Visitor Information: Report on Tourism Industry

SITXCCS002 Provide Visitor Information: Report on Tourism Industry thumbnail



Research and collate information on the different sectors of the travel and tourism industry. Compile an information booklet that could be given to a new employee in a tourism workplace of your choice (hotel, travel agency, airline, tour operator, etc) to help them gain a better understanding of the travel and tourism industry in Australia.

The first step will be to choose a type of business where you will be the supervisor. Pick something that you are familiar with receptionist in a hotel, travel agent in a travel agency, tour guide in a tour operator, flight attendant in an airline, information officer in a tourist information office…It has to be a tourism business.

Companies offering the same type of products will have very different profiles. If we look at for instance Emirates and Jetstar or The Hilton and YHA backpackers, they will have very different quality standards, recycling policies, overbooking policies, technology used etc. You only need to focus on one, either real or imaginary company.

Next, you need to prepare a 2 pages information pack for a new employee that will start working under your supervision. Since the person is new, we need to advise them not only about how to do their job competently, but also about the general rules in our company.

The layout of the booklet needs to have the following sections/chapters.

  1. Name 3 different sectors of the travel and tourism industry with which your company interacts, including their interrelationships and the services available in each sector. As an example: If your business is a hotel, you may liaise with transportation, tour operators, travel agencies etc, explain how.
  1. Name 3 environmental issues and requirements, including but not limited to: the management of air quality, water quality, waste, recycling etc. As an example: How does your company recycle? How many types of bins are available? What is the policy air conditioning temperature?
  2. Name 3 work ethics required to work in the industry, including but not limited to: confidentiality, overbooking, consumer protection etc. As an example: In case of overbooking, what are the steps to follow? How do you ensure total confidentiality of your customers’ details? What is your policy on customers’ complaints?
  1. Name 3 relevant either legislation, codes of practice or quality assurance practices, including but not limited to Equal Employment Opportunity, accreditation, licences etc. As an example: Does your company encourage a multicultural workplace? What measures are in place to ensure quality? How does your company comply with smoking legislation?
  1. Name 3 examples of technology in use, including but not limited to: e-business, online booking systems, social media sites etc. As an example: What promotions are in place to encourage customers’ posts in the company’s Facebook page? What other social media is used? How is the e-business side managed? What technology is available to customers?
  1. Choose 1 current issue (Air Asia lost plane, Cuba-US renewal of relations, price of the Australian dollar etc) and describe how it impacted on this workplace. How and why employees should keep updated about current issues?
