About this Unit
This unit introduces nursing and midwifery students to Primary Health Care (PHC) as a social model of health and a World Health Organization (WHO) strategy for achieving just and humane health care. The unit explores the impact and relevance of PHC as a framework for organising an Australian health care system that decreases health inequities and optimises the health of all people. Students will examine the dimensions of PHC that assist in establishing collaborative partnerships in which people are supported to take responsibility for their health, including members of culturally diverse groups.
