In Australia, we're well educated about health risks yet our government spends millions each year treating preventable diseases. This program provides a detailed overview of health promotion in today's society.
The Ottawa Charter Framework for health promotion is explored as a contributing factor to improved health outcomes for various groups in Australia.
Each chapter provides a unique perspective of how to improve the health of individuals, as well as preventative measures such as immunisation and cancer screening.
The program's practical approach looks at how the strategies are implemented, the target audience and the impact it has in individual behaviour and outcomes.
