About this Unit
In 2012 this unit is replaced by 300821 - Environment and Health. This unit introduces students to the holistic and socio-ecological nature of human health and its inextricable linkages with the socio-cultural and physical environment, focussing specifically on noise as a significant risk to physical and mental health in the urban environment. Students are challenged to identify the underlying causes of traditional and contemporary environmental health issues and to explore the changing nature of environmental health, its professional practice and associated policy and the changing roles and responsibilities of stakeholders in government, business and industry. Students select from a range of health promotion and community education models in order to design and evaluate community intervention strategies to address selected environmental health issues.
