Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) have become leading causes of mortality and morbidity both in Australia and other nations. The aim of the subject is to increase students' understanding and awareness of NCD's aetiology, prevention programs and management. Examples such as exercise for cardiovascular disease and obesity prevention is explored. Students gain an understanding of the ways that health care professionals can work with communities to not only prevent these conditions in the first place but to assist individuals and communities to manage these conditions more effectively.
