Description

This subject relates to ‘Health Promotion and Advocacy’ (95734) by further developing and progressing students’ understanding of health promotion. It specifically focuses on leadership by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders, communities, and organisations in health promotion. The subject is oriented to recognising and valuing Indigenous excellence, drawing on quality evidence and ethical processes informed by cultural protocols. Students explore health promotion in terms of community development, community participation, multi-level empowerment, evidence, and capacity building implications. Assessments draw on these and other core principles underpinning Indigenous health promotion, to support students to centre the voices of diverse Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
