UG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
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.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
critically analyse sociological perspectives on health and illness
recognise how health, illness and the healthcare system are outcomes of the ways in which society is organised
identify the social, economic, political and cultural aspects involved in reproducing or changing health inequalities in Australian society
critically evaluate health status in relation to stratification concepts of class, gender, ethnicity and regionality.
