Overview

The Graduate Certificate aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills to incorporate the principles of public health into specific fields of practice in order to reduce inequalities in health care access and health outcomes.

In Australia, these principles include:

  • maximising consumer and community participation to enable individuals and communities to be better informed and to be involved in health care decisions
  • encouraging partnerships between health and non-health sectors to ensure full use of resources
  • fostering self-management and self-reliance to increase knowledge, skills and confidence in individuals, groups and communities
  • promoting health and disease prevention to attain and sustain good health and well-being.

Students completing the Graduate Certificate should be able to:

  • analyse theoretical concepts relevant to the determinants of health and well-being
  • understand the relevance of models of public health in a range of real world and workplace problems
  • appreciate the benefits of multi-disciplinary approaches in health and human services to promoting and improving health
  • apply principles of health promotion to clinical or community practice.
