PUBLIC HEALTH NUTRITION
Credit points: 15
In this subject students will develop an understanding of the key public health nutrition topics, how dietary choices are influenced by socio-environmental factors, and what is being done to improve the nutritional health status of all Australians. Students will use a public health framework to become familiar with fundamental nutritional needs and their relationship to health outcomes. Students will explore current evidence of the nutritional health status of the Australian population; the social determinants of nutrition; and the settings in which practitioners can work to assist communities address nutritional needs. Examples of nutrition and physical activity strategies, that aim to address current health issues such as chronic conditions, food safety and food security, will be examined.
