Event description

Description

This course is delivered as a core course in the Masters of Public Health. It has been designed to introduce students to the history, principles, central concepts and theories of health promotion in the context of public health. Students will gain an understanding of how to identify health promotion priorities and strategies across the disease prevention continuum from local to global. Frameworks for health promotion action will be presented, so that students gain an understanding of the scope of health promotion. Students will be introduced to the basic theories of communication and the role communication skills play in health promotion action.

This course is a new course to the program, so is being delivered for the first time this semester.It will be delivered in an interactive lecture style, with reflection and pair discussions built into the lecture time.

Sheleigh is a health psychologist, with a PhD in Psychology from the University of Auckland, New Zealand. She is a Senior Lecturer in the Cancer Prevention Research and is responsible for the Coordination of the Health Promotion Plan in the Masters of Public Health. She currently coordinates the two plan defining courses and the core course. Her research covers a broad range of health promotion research, with a specific interest in broad-reach lifestyle interventions for cancer survivors, and the role that psychosocial factors play.

Sheleigh makes classes as interactive as possible, and trials different techniques, which may be active learning or technology driven.

N.B. This course is delivered at Herston.
