HIP303 Health Promotion Project Management (8)

In this subject, students will design a health promotion project in collaboration with a community based organisation, working in partnership with stakeholders to facilitate a person and community-focused approach to care. The focus of the project will be on community health, wellness, or rehabilitation and students will apply the PRECEDE/PROCEED model of health promotion to inform ethical practice in project planning, implementation and evaluation. Students will work closely with a community organisation in the design of the project with a focus on integrated healthcare and ensuring sustainable healthy communities. This subject will further develop students' skills in academic and digital literacies, and extend their knowledge of research methods, biomedical and social sciences.
