Why do people make the health decisions they do, even though they sometimes seem like the wrong ones? How do social and psychological factors affect people¿s health outcomes? This unit introduces you to key areas of psychology and sociology relevant to health and wellbeing that will be important tools for understanding and practicing in health and wellbeing, by helping you to understand the lives of those people you will help through your work. The unit aims to develop a 'sociological imagination', which is a quality of mind that will be used to prompt you to question common­sense assumptions regarding health and wellbeing. You will also gain familiarity with some key areas of contemporary psychology.

This Unit of Study teaches students, from an Indigenous Australian lens, about delivering services to Indigenous populations to address health and wellness. The semester journey takes into account the strength of Indigenous ways of doing, knowing and being that have enabled Indigenous people to address the social, political and cultural determinants of health. Students will be engaged in understanding the complexities surrounding the collection and recording of accurate Indigenous population health data that has led to Indigenous disadvantage and the gap in life expectancy that Australia still struggles to close. Students will be engaged in strategies for effective cultural communication with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health professionals and patients/ clients. Ethical approaches required for researching Indigenous peoples and communities will also be explored.

The focus of this unit of study is on the meaning of globalisation and its impact on health. It examines social and cultural shifts and technological advancement and their impact on health and disability and professional practices. The unit examines the key drivers of globalisation and features of the shift from international to global health. The unit also aims to provide understanding of both the direct and indirect impact of global changes on biopsychosocial aspects of health and health care delivery and professional practices. The direct impact includes shifting disease, disability and behaviour patterns. The indirect impacts include those of, international health regulations, globalization of professional ethics and professional practices, global governance, movement of health professions, the advancement of medical technology and internet 'globalisation' on health care service delivery and professional practices. The unit analyses global health challenges such as disability inclusive development, climate change, C and NCDs, pharmaceuticals, and tobacco control from global perspectives. The unit provides students with skills in alaysing multidisciplinary approaches in health, public-private partnership and role of NGOs and community organizations in their profession.

This unit examines theoretical and practical issues confronting global health professionals and practitioners, especially in low resource settings. It provides students with opportunities to apply their disciplinary expertise in the interdisciplinary, international health setting. The unit takes interdisciplinary approach to introduce students to: a) historical, political and economic forces that influence the health of populations around the world and contribute to international health inequities; b) global health crises (emerging infectious disease such as Covid-19, chronic disease such a s diabetes and cancer and disability) facing both developed and developing countries and their impact; and,c) international health initiatives and practices, including key actors and initiatives, as well as challenges and strategies for working in cross­cultural contexts. The unit provides students with an understanding of health determinants and interventions in international contexts, with a particular emphasis on low­resource settings. Examples of topics covered include health, poverty and inequality, foreign aid and development assistance, globalisation, technology and health. The unit also provides an introductory overview of contemporary international health challenges such as food security, humanitarian crises and climate change. Students will be introduced to global health data to better understand disparities in health and inequality. Students will undertake individual and group work to study global health from multiple disciplinary perspectives; they will investigate an in­depth study of a global health issue, analyse global health data to explore the context in which it emerged and the forces that propel it, and advocate for actions to improve the issue in a specific local context and population group.

Cultural practices, disease patterns and healthcare systems are vastly different in different countries around the globe. This unit provides students with the opportunity to gain international experience in a health services setting in a country with a developing economy. Students will participate in a 4­6 week health or care placement with a community­based organisation in South or Southeast Asia. As part of the unit, you will be expected to participate in local development programs, live within the community that you are visiting, and document and reflect on key health and development issues facing local populations. The unit will require you to demonstrate cultural sensitivity and an ability to adapt to new environments, a capacity for critical reflection and awareness of complex global health and development issues.

This is the third and final unit of study in radiographic evaluation. Building upon MRTY2102 and MRTY2106, this unit focuses on image interpretation of advanced musculoskeletal and pulmonary cases for analysis of both pathology and image critique. The range of clinical scenarios will include cross sectional images (CT, MRI, US) and planar imaging. Students will learn about medical image perception of images from a 2D and 3D perspective. Evidence in current image techniques will underpin the case selection and evaluation.

This unit of study is a core subject for the pass pathway of the Bachelor of Applied Science (Diagnostic Radiography). It is designed to enhance the ability of students to critically appraise information on advances in the field of medical radiation science from a variety of sources. Students will also gain an appreciation of the pathways and barriers to clinical translation of new imaging techniques by investigating an area of medical radiation science practice or theory, undertaking a literature review and applying clinical reasoning and reflective processes to identify implications for clinical practice. Key learning outcomes include the appraisal of research methodologies, interpreting current evidence and demonstrating knowledge of fundamental ethical considerations when conducting research.
