Foundations of Public Health - HSYP801

This Unit provides the foundations for understanding the discipline of public health. It introduces students to public health history, current population health issues both locally and globally, and public health ethics. It also introduces systems thinking as a means of recognising the nonlinear and dynamic nature of public health problems. Two one-day workshops will bring together the above learning in the areas of public health ethics and systems thinking as well as building communication skills that will equip students with practical skills essential to moving forward in their studies and future public health practice.
