About this Unit
This unit presents current advances and challenges in health promotion. Advances in technology are critiqued with regards to their positive and negative contribution to health promotion. This unit also reviews social marketing strategies and how these can be used in health promotion campaigns. Complexities in working with vulnerable communities in different settings are explored including schools, workplaces, communities (including Indigenous, culturally and linguistically diverse, refugee and homeless groups), healthcare settings, rural/remote areas and prisons. New patterns in health and their challenges are covered. Ethical and political considerations in health promotion are also included.
