Subject outline

This subject will provide you with a broad understanding of health and wellbeing among Indigenous, culturally and linguistically diverse communities. This understanding is important for people working with diverse populations in healthcare settings who need to develop culturally-appropriate interventions and programmes. Through guest and expert presentations, workshops and consideration of theoretical frameworks, you will cover topics such as risk factors to diseases, interactions with healthcare institutions and services, Australian settlement and immigration policies, and inequities of gender to good health and wellbeing. Your learning in this subject will be assessed through participation in group work, quizzes and producing individual written work
