This is the second of six sequential, interdependent modules, available only to students enrolled in the Graduate Diploma in Indigenous Health Promotion. Students will explore in detail the conceptual components of a planned health promotion initiative. This will include the theory and practice of community engagement and participation, defining and understanding the priority health issue, its risk factors and contributing factors, exploring theories and models relevant to health behaviour, identifying target groups and stakeholders, searching the literature for evidence and ideas, and resource mobilisation. Students will also be introduced to formative research and the value of developing effective partnerships. The final 20 per cent of INDH5212 will be dedicated to commencing INDH5213.
