10 cp
Prerequisites Nil
Teaching Organisation 150 hours of focused learning.

Professionals in health promotion practice require a practical understanding and appropriate skills for the design, implementation and evaluation of health promotion programs. Commencing with the identification of issues through a needs assessment, students will gain an understanding of the frameworks used to design programs to improve health at the population, rather than the individual level. Drawing on research as well as practical case studies, this unit aims to develop in students the ability to distinguish and apply a range of approaches necessary for successful programs in varied settings including sporting clubs, schools, community groups, and local government.
