Health promotion provides the process for increasing awareness of factors that impact on health and health enhancement strategies. This subject considers the impact of public policy on health and health behaviours. Individual and population level interventions are examined and evaluated. Students explore health promotion in relation to Indigenous health and take into account culture, diversity within populations, language and dialect differences, socioeconomic circumstance, geographical location and the continuing impact of colonisation on improving health of communities.
