Prepare for the future of healthcare Healthcare is Australia’s largest industry. It’s growing and it’s also changing. Dr Louise Horstmanshof, Course Coordinator for the Master of Healthcare Leadership, says “we’re preparing in many ways for an unknown future”. We’re living longer but we also want to live better.
