PUBLIC HEALTH FRAMEWORKS FOR RURAL PHARMACY PRACTICE

HLT3RPH

2015

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students will be introduced to the interdisciplinary and intersectoral nature of public health and the belief that health professionals acting individually and collectively can improve public health. The content includes the history of the development of modern public health practice and how the range of strategies seeks to address the social/environmental determinants of disease and health. Key frameworks will be introduced which can guide public health practitioners when planning, implementing and evaluating various strategies. The rural context of much pharmacy practice makes it essential that students understand the factors which undermine the health status of rural people and also impinge on health service policy, planning and delivery in rural areas.
