This subject builds on the knowledge developed in Illness Experience & Nursing Care and Nursing and the Healthcare System 1. The subject will examine the principles of health promotion, particularly in relation to the recommendations arising from the World Health Organisation International Conferences on Health Promotion. Current Australian / Victorian health promotion strategies will be analysed and critiqued. Students will be introduced to health education within the context of health promotion. The need for patients to self-monitor and self-manage increasingly complex medical care in the home environment will be explored in relation to the educational & support needs of patients and families.
