PHM516 Indigenous Health and Social Change

This unit provides a sociological approach to examining the key factors that influence health in Indigenous communities in northern Australia. We will examine the social determinants of Indigenous health and well being and policy responses to public health challenges and health inequality. There is also a critical interrogation of the relationship between the health of Indigenous Australians, colonization, disempowerment and the impact on governance and leadership.

Throughout this unit, students will be introduced to sociological concepts and theories to study the social and cultural dimensions of health related issues, both at the macro-social level -in the study of health systems and health policy and micro social level in the study of clinical encounters and illness related behaviours.
