Synopsis

This course will examine biopsychosocial factors associated with mortality and morbidity in the Australian culture; and in working in multi-disciplinary teams across health contexts. It will consider research and theory relevant to health and lifestyle-related behaviour and pain management. A range of health attitudes, assessment methods and interventions will be reviewed, and students will use several of these methods in practice sessions-including theory and application with specific groups (e.g., ethnicity, Australian Indigenous clients). Attendance at the five on-campus workshops is mandatory. Dates of the five workshops will be according to the 'Workshop Schedule' which will be emailed to students at the outset of the program.
