This subject emphasises the determinants of health as well as the principles and practices of primary health care. The subject also builds a foundation for community public health nutrition for dietitians and provides an introduction to the use of epidemiological, socioeconomic, and behavioural evidence-based data in community and public health. Additionally, attention is paid to community-based nutrition programs with a focus on groups of individuals at risk of poor nutritional outcomes, including those from disadvantaged and Indigenous communities. Consideration is also given to a range of other public health nutrition issues relevant to dietitians.
