This unit will help students to understand the context of community health issues and needs, and apply the range of principles, processes and strategies to develop health promotion programs to address those issues and needs.
The unit is comprised of three modules. Module 1 explores the discipline of health promotion, the context of health promotion practice, and the need for effective planning in health promotion. It introduces the key frameworks and tools that will be applied for developing a health promotion program. Module 2 develops applied understanding of how to identify and understand community health needs as the first step in planning an effective, relevant and targeted health promotion program. Module 3 builds on modules 1 and 2 to design a realistic health promotion program to address the needs identified in Module 2, using the planning principles and frameworks introduced in Module 1.
The unit provides the basis for HSH218 Planning and Evaluation 2, which examines and practices how community based health promotion are evaluated.
