9780995368903: Medicare Nightmare: The Great Australian Tragedy

For decades, public discourse on the Australian health system has been reduced to focusing on limited issues such as e-health or budget cuts while failing to capture the greatest challenge facing our national healthcare system. That is, inefficient access to crucial information that empowers patients and their carers to make more effective health decisions and maximise patient outcomes, leading to the dilemma and tragedy of 'the Medicare Nightmare.' This nightmare is not just a personal nightmare but a national one as well, considering poor medical information flow in our healthcare system and society results in increasing medical errors, escalating medical costs and an overburdened health system, impacting on the sustainability of our valued Medicare scheme. Complicated access to essential medical information is also linked to the oppression of women, disempowerment of health consumers and the general failure of our education system at all levels to empower individuals to make more informed decisions on the most important asset they will ever possess- their health.
Incorporating case study analysis, this book tackles how such poor information flow occurs, allowing all key stakeholders in the healthcare system to take more responsibility for not just their personal health and wealth but that of their nation too. It is only through creating more public awareness in our society on the great Medicare Nightmare that we can increase our chances of alleviating the personal suffering and loss incurred by its unfortunate victims and reveal the hidden impact and costs these nightmares collectively have had on our society.
Written by a Science/Academic Literacy teacher with an educational background in Medical Science, Business and Education, this book is a must-read for anyone who has any contact with the Australian health system. An established curricular justice author, Dal Ouba also has extensive experience in developing quality educational materials, both in the secondary and tertiary education sectors and has offered this unique resource that promises to change public discourse on our health system forever.

About the Author:

Dal Ouba, (Dalal Oubani) is an Academic Literacy Teacher who has achieved academic scholarship in the area of curricular justice in education after publishing an academic article on this subject for the International Journal of Education (IEJ), Comparative Perspectives in 2014.

She has also contributed towards the development and revision of the Australian Curriculum for both the English and History syllabuses stages 4-6. With almost a decades experience teaching in the secondary education sector, Dalal specialises in teaching scientific and academic literacy and has created many quality literacy programs for secondary schools in Sydney. Dalal has also presented at various international conferences on education and is currently the Director of Accelerate Australia, an educational website aimed at both complementing and assessing the impact of the Australian Curriculum on Australian society. As a certified workplace assessor and trainer, this allows Dalal to share her unique expertise with her peers, while contributing to improving the quality of the education system in Australia. Dalal currently teaches academic literacy across university colleges in Sydney and is commended for her professionalism in her field and highly regarded by her peers for her skills, especially developing unique and engaging educational materials that support student learning.
