This subject builds on the foundation subject ‘Health Promotion and Advocacy’ (92570). Students are introduced to a contemporary understanding of ethics, values and theories in health promotion. Theories from medical sociology, philosophy, and psychology as well as pedagogical approaches to behaviour change and social learning form the basis of this subject. Using contemporary health issues in Australia and internationally, students will learn how these theories and concepts can be integrated into health promotion activities to effectively and ethically improve the health of individuals and populations.
