Indigenous Health and Communities (KCDE2203)
UNIT OF STUDY
The continuing poor health status of Indigenous people is well documented. However, attempts at improving Aboriginal health have often been met with inappropriate policy and practice. This unit of study aims to give an historical and contemporary understanding of a diverse range of issues impacting on Aboriginal Health. Students are given the opportunity to explore sociological and Indigenous health frameworks in order to identify a range of strategies which will work towards improving the health of Indigenous Australians. A focus of this unit will be in providing students with the opportunity to explore the ways in which they may work with Aboriginal communities to facilitate self-determination in Aboriginal health.
