This Unit aims to develop the student’s advanced knowledge, skills and analysis of primary health care (PHC). Students will develop knowledge and skills in critical thinking and in the application of PHC research to practice, with a focus on addressing health inequities. The epidemiological base for population health will be utilised to assist primary health care nurses to collaborate effectively with their clients and communities. Students will explore a range of factors necessary for advancing health and wellbeing in the primary health care space including: community profiles, health statistics, the social correlates of health, health literacy and health policy.
