GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES IN ORAL HEALTH
Credit points: 15
A global citizen is guided by respect for others, wherever they live. It has been described as a way of living that recognises our world is an increasingly complex web of connections and interdependencies. One in which our choices and actions may have repercussions for people and communities locally, nationally or internationally. In this subject you will gain insight in dimensions of cultures and you will further explore your role as an oral health therapist in a multicultural society. You will explore and further develop your own cultural competence through an elective regional, interstate or overseas placement and participation in a virtual cross cultural learning activity and acquire a transcultural perspective. This subject addresses La Trobe's Global Citizenship Essential. Global Citizenship entails deep appreciation of how we live in an interconnected world, being able to recognise the global context of concepts, act across cultures and boundaries, and work with diverse communities now and in the future.
