Students will develop an understanding of how health inequities develop and the multifaceted nature of health equity practice. The impact that strategies have on health disparities will be critically analysed and current national and global initiatives aimed at reducing inequities in health will be reviewed.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
