This unit addresses social, cultural and environmental factors that result in high rates of lifestyle disease, unsafe work practices and raised levels of mental illness amongst agricultural workers, their families and communities. This unit aims to improve the understanding of the diverse and intergenerational factors leading to this health imbalance by highlighting the key determinants of agricultural health and medicine both in Australia and internationally. Important agricultural topics covered in this unit include provision of safe work environment, access to health and education services, health literacy, social isolation, biosecurity, rural networks, the physical, mental and social impact of climate variability and agricultural lifestyle disease. A better knowledge of these factors will improve the effectiveness of current health, education and community interventions and promote health as a cornerstone to the sustainability and productivity of rural and remote communities.
