Overview

The Indigenous Health Promotion course aims to provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers 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, as well as the strengths and assets. They will be able to identify health issues and develop realistic, measurable and sustainable solutions. There is particular emphasis on building the human capital and capabilities of community members and working equitably to ensure those who are most disadvantaged benefit from the programs.
