Primary Health Care 2 CNA555



This unit will explore Primary Health principles, philosophy, approaches, and frameworks for working in a variety of roles providing health care for the community across the lifespan. This subject will expand students’ understanding of primary health care in the context of cultural and social diversity in order to generate real solutions for building lasting change in diverse health systems. The content also enables students to develop skills in developing and sustaining an adaptable culturally sensitive approach to planning and managing health services when working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, marginalised and vulnerable groups. Students will begin to develop enhanced leadership and communication skills for working in multi-disciplinary teams and planning and evaluating health promotion activities.
