Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students will expand their knowledge of the Australian rural health context, as well as be introduced to concepts in rural health practice. Using a public health framework, students will explore differences between rural and urban health status and the relationship to broader social determinants. In doing so, the implications for health policy, rural health service delivery and professional practice are examined. Students also have the opportunity to review discipline-specific professional practice in a rural setting.
