This subject will allow students to develop a broad and critical conceptual and practical understanding of the unique challenges involved with the management and leadership of emerging public health threats. It will provide a platform for discussing current and emerging public health threats with a specific focus on discussing the unique clinical and logistic challenges involved with the management of a range of emerging public health threats, the social implications associated with responding to an emerging public health crisis, and an examination of the ethical issues involved with the provision of care during these events. Relevant international and national case studies will be critiqued and the current evidence-base for emerging public health threats will be explored to promote an understanding of the infrastructure and inter-agency involvement required for the response to, management of, and recovery from these events.
