This subject is the first in a series of three Healthcare in Context subjects that will be completed over the duration of three semesters. Students will further develop their understanding of the Australian health care system and and different models of health. Specific attention will be paid to the bio-psychosocial model of health, including the relevance of sociology and behavioural sciences as explanatory concepts of health experience and delivery. Concepts such as inter-professional collaborative practice; primary health care; and Health Promotion will form the theoretical framework underpinning this subject. Students will further build on their ability to use the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Disease as a way of understanding health experiences from the person and community perspective. Students will be encouraged and assisted to access and establish relationships with communities as a way to understand theory in a health related context. Working in small groups, students will be assigned to local, rural, indigenous and refugee communities within Australia.
