From dementia studies to domestic and family violence practice, healthy aging, and critical care for paramedics, CQUniversity has recently introduced a range of postgraduate offerings to its health portfolio. The courses provide new opportunities and pathways to those already working in the sector.

Delivered via distance education, CQUniversity’s newest courses include the Graduate Certificate in Facilitating Men’s Behaviour Change, Graduate Certificate in Dementia Studies, Graduate Certificate in Domestic and Family Violence Practice, Graduate Certificate in Healthy Ageing, Graduate Diploma of Dementia Studies, Graduate Diploma of Domestic and Family Violence Practice, Graduate Diploma of Healthy Ageing, and Graduate Diploma of Paramedic Science (Critical Care).

A suite of related short courses in healthy ageing and dementia are also available which articulate into the graduate certificates, allowing students to start a qualification at their own pace.

The Graduate Certificate and the Graduate Diploma of Domestic and Family Violence Practice are the first of their kind in Australia and are suitable for a broad range of professionals, including emergency service workers, support staff, and legal and medical professionals.

The courses were developed in collaboration with industry and practitioners based on current and future community requirements and are informed by ground breaking research into each of the discipline areas. Studying these courses will allow professionals from a range of different backgrounds to develop specialised skills and knowledge that can be applied as part of their existing roles, or can help them develop and advance in their careers.

To find out more about any of the new health courses – or other health courses available at CQUniversity - head to the CQUniversity booth at the 14th National Rural Health Conference in Cairns from 26-29 April, or go to cqu.edu.au.
