This subject provides an introduction to the principles and practice of health promotion. Students examine the characteristics of successful local, state/territory and national health promotion programs and policy that have made a difference to health behaviour at the individual and population level. Students also investigate how health professionals work to deliver health promotion and principles for culturally competent practice with Indigenous Australians. Hands-on tasks enhance students' understanding of health promotion ideas and advocacy strategies that aim to influence the social and political structures in order to promote and sustain justice and equality.
