This course will draw upon theory on the social determinants of health, primary health care, wellness promotion, program planning and evaluation, population health, and healthy public policy. Links to social, cultural, environmental, political, and economic contexts that impact on health, equity, and health disparities will be critically analyzed. Research-based evidence central to primary health care and advanced nursing practice will be examined. Emphasis throughout will be placed on upstream, participatory, and collaborative approaches to the development of population health initiatives and healthy public policy.
