Mildura, Victoria : Aboriginal health promotion short course
Dreher, Bronwyn, Fredericks, Bronwyn L., Mahoney, Ray, & Merzliakov, Nikki (2009) Mildura, Victoria : Aboriginal health promotion short course. Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal, 33(6), pp. 6-7.
The Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation’s (VACCHO) Public Health and Research Unit delivered an Aboriginal Health Promotion Short Course in Mildura in 2009. -----
The VACCHO delivered Aboriginal Health Promotion Short Course included current health promotion theory and practice as it specifically relates to Aboriginal people within Victoria. As Aboriginal people have a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, the course specifically addressed risk factors for chronic disease including smoking, physical activity, nutrition and mental health and well-being. Hence, a key part of the course involved participants working in groups to plan a health promotion program for one of the key health issues- smoking, physical activity and nutrition, or spiritual health and wellbeing. The aim is for participants to use these programs in their daily work with Aboriginal clients.
