Information and Communications Technology is an integral part of everyday life and is increasingly becoming a part of the public health and health promotion space. This subject builds on ‘Health Promotion and Advocacy’ (95734) by further developing and progressing students’ understanding of the evolving role of Health Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in public health and health promotion. Students explore different aspects of the contemporary use of ICT in health promotion including social and mass media, artificial intelligence and machine learning as well as eHealth and mHealth. The subject provides students with the tools required to assess the appropriateness, effectiveness and usefulness of these applications across health issues, settings and populations.
