Current community health concerns and the preoccupations of health policy and services. Frameworks for conceptualising and assessing the health concerns that impact on individuals, families and communities, are analysed and applied to specific health concerns.


At the completion of this unit it is expected that students will have:

  2. considered the application of these frameworks to their own practice and to other settings where health issues predominate.
