    Graduate Certificate in Health Promotion


    The Graduate Certificate in Health Promotion aims to provide you 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.

    The program prepares you to analyse theory of the determinants of health and wellbeing, understand models of public health in a range of real-world and workplace problems, appreciate multidisciplinary approaches in health and human services for promoting and improving health, and apply principles of health promotion to clinical or community practice. Topics cover areas such as health promotion in public health, social determinants of health and wellbeing, action on social determinants of health, and primary health care practice in developing countries. Note: this course articulates into the Master of Public Health.
