“Identify the relationship between the social and economic conditions of everyday life and health outcomes”
In this learning activity, we will explore the social determinants which influence the health outcomes for people in Australia. We will investigate how the socioeconomic characteristics and environmental factors, knowledge, attitudes and beliefs, all influence population health in Australia.
And as with any risk factors, the combination of these risks increases the population’s experience of poor health outcomes, leaving the community to find the resources to manage this increasing burden of disease.
In this session, you will:
- Understand the inequalities in health between population groups in Australia
- Explore the causal links between social determinants and individual and population health outcomes
- Identify the relationship between the social and economic conditions of everyday life and health outcomes
- Learn how an individual’s socioeconomic position can have an impact on risk factors and health outcomes
