Embracing complexity - thinking and working in systems

When it comes to addressing the complex problem that is population health and health inequities in relation to the COVID-19 crisis, a systems approach is a useful way of thinking and working moving forward. But where do we begin?

Dr Melanie Pescud , Senior Research Fellow at the Menzies Centre for Health Governance at the School of Regulation and Global Governance and the Australian Prevention Partnership Centre discusses some key steps for taking a systems approach and asks us to pause and reflect on the change we seek to make as individuals and as a collective to alchemise the crisis into a catalyst for change.
