BCDP02-063: Australia's Health Issues and Priorities

Description

Australia's Health Issues and Priorities introduces students to Australia’s national health priority areas, providing them with an understanding of the epidemiological profile and burden of disease for each health issue. It will enable students to evaluate health issue causality using the determinant approach and to use this evaluation to identify interventions and opportunities to improve health across the health system. Students will develop an understanding of the social determinants of health and their impacts on health outcomes, and explore the roles, responsibilities, practice areas, and expertise of the major health professions in Australia. In addition, students will hear from a multidisciplinary team of educators and guests and be guided to consider the current and future challenges that priority health issues pose for health professionals and researchers.
