This core unit of study explores the ways in which meanings about health are socially and politically constructed in
contemporary Australian society. The unit introduces a health determinants approach to explore a range of factors that impact upon individual and/or community health - gender, age, genetics, education, race & ethnicity, globalisation and geographic location. Students will develop an appreciation for and understanding of the ways in which meanings of health are constructed, change over time and are institutionalised through health policies and practices. Students will investigate 'upstream' approaches to health education and health promotion that empower teachers, individuals and communities and lessen the burden on primary health care.
