MN8911 Population Health and Health Promotion: Community and Global Perspectives
Drawing upon critical theory, the social determinants of health, and social justice frameworks, learners will engage in an analysis of major primary health care, health promotion, and population health initiatives locally, nationally, and globally. Links to social, cultural, environmental, political, and economic contexts that impact on health, equity, and health disparities will be analyzed critically. Evidence-based research and ethical considerations central to community health and advanced community health nursing practice will be examined. Emphasis throughout will be placed on upstream, participatory, and collaborative approaches to the development of healthy public policy locally and globally.
