About this Unit
This unit introduces students to the holistic and socio-ecological nature of human health and its linkages with the socio-cultural and physical environment, focussing specifically on environmental noise as a significant risk to both physical and mental health. Students are challenged to identify and reflect on the underlying causes of traditional and contemporary environmental health issues and to explore the changing nature of environmental health, its professional practice, associated policy and the changing roles and responsibilities in government, business and industry. The unit introduces a range of health promotion and community education models for the design and evaluation of environmental health interventions.
