Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

investigate the social construction of health and illness in relation to historical, cultural, structural and individual factors and the social determinants of health

describe and discuss the construction and diverse meanings of health, wellness, illness and disease for the health consumer’s narrative in local and global settings

investigate and establish creative responses to provide health care to multiple narratives of health and illness in relation to vulnerable populations

describe the principles of cultural competence and cultural safety in order to provide culturally competent, person-centred nursing care to consumers with an emphasis on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
