About this Unit
The challenge for nursing in terms of health promotion is to acknowledge the complex interrelatedness between a person's social and economic situation, their sense of power and control over their life and their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being, i.e. To understand that health is determined by the totality of a person’s life circumstances and their inherent traits. This unit uses a social health perspective to examine evidence-based health promotion strategies that can be implemented in the context of nursing practice.
