Goals, Objectives and Strategies (INDH5213)


This is the third of six sequential, interdependent modules, only provided for students enrolled in the Graduate Diploma in Indigenous Health Promotion. Students will develop the specific, measureable, achievable, realistic and time-limited (SMART) goal, objectives and strategies they and their community will use to address the identified priority health issue. They will understand how and when to use the three broad types of strategies in health promotion - education, mobilisation, and advocacy - to effectively address the factors contributing to the health issue. They will further explore relevant theories and models that will assist the development process and analyse and critique case studies of effective health promotion programs. Students will also be introduced to process, impact and outcome evaluation.
