Overview

The Graduate Diploma in Indigenous Health Promotion aims to provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who work in roles related to health, wellbeing or community development with the knowledge and skills necessary to work with their communities to prevent illness and injury, or minimise the harm associated with these conditions.

The course was developed in consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health professionals and is based on national and international best practice in Indigenous health promotion.

Course outcomes

Students will learn how to define and understand their community's determinants of health and wellbeing. Students will be able to identify community priority health issues and will learn to develop realistic, measurable and sustainable solutions. There is particular emphasis on building the capacity and capabilities of community members and a focus on working equitably to ensure community members gain maximum benefit from health promotion programs.
