Managing Health Resources: A Foundation

An increasing focus on fiscal management means NSW Health employees require the skills and knowledge to ensure and promote financial integrity and accountability.

Using NSW Health scenarios and team-based activities, participants develop strategies and skills to improve decision making about rostering, procurement and other expenditure related processes.

The course can be tailored to the strategic needs of individual NSW Health organisations. The content provides an opportunity for employees who make resourcing decisions to gain a basic understanding of financial reports and terminology.

This is a foundation course. Cost-centre managers or managers with some knowledge and experience of managing a cost centre are recommended to enrol in the Financial Management Essentials course.
