Public Health Capstone (PUBH5034)


This unit provides students with an opportunity to draw together and integrate their learning in the four aspects of Public Health - knowledge, values, action and outcomes -and apply these to a practical project. A one-day workshop and a study guide will prepare students for this task. Students will be expected to complete a task which illustrates how a public health problem can be analysed and an appropriate response formulated. Students may design a simple study and complete an ethics application or develop a health promotion evaluation plan. Students will also complete an assessable literature review and an online reflective journal.
