NRS81001 Nursing In The Australian Context



The purpose of this report is to help you deepen your understanding of the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) in Australia, in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) communities. NRS81001 Nursing In The Australian Context

Task Requirements:

Part 1: SDOH

Identify and critically discuss ONE of the Australian Health Care System’s national health priority areas experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) communities. National priority areas include; cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis and musculoskeletal diseases, mental health disorders, asthma, obesity and injuries.

In your discussion include how the SDOH (situations, circumstances and environments in which people live) have impacted on the health and wellbeing of ATSI individuals and communities, in relation to the disease/injury selected. NRS81001 Nursing In The Australian Context

To assist the above discussion, consider the following SDOH. You may wish to discuss all or some of these:

  • Education and literacy
  • Employment/working conditions
  • Social environments
  • Physical environments
  • Personal health practices and coping skills
  • Healthy child development
  • Income and social Status
  • Social support networks

These SDOH can determine whether people have equal opportunity to live a healthy life. For example, if a person has poor education and/or low income, they are less likely to have the ability to access nutritious food than someone who has had a good education and is financially secure.

Part 2: Program

Identify ONE current health promotion and/or illness prevention program (this can be a local, state or national program) that has been implemented to assist the health priority area (disease/injury)

that you have discussed in Part 1. Please do not discuss a National Strategy or Framework. Discuss how the program encourages and motivates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) communities to reduce their risk factors for the health disease/injury you have selected. Include in your discussion how this primary health care concept addresses health inequalities experienced by this population. NRS81001 Nursing In The Australian Context
