UNDERSTANDING HEALTH AND WELLBEING
Credit points: 15
In this subject, you will develop a broad understanding of health and wellbeing, examining key theories that underpin concepts in contemporary health and wellbeing. You will investigate the complex range of interactions that influence the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and populations. As health is a dynamic concept, you will further examine the social, environmental and biomedical determinants of health and wellbeing within an Australian and global context. 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.
