Nursing 6120 Advanced Primary Health Care (Winter 2020)

This course will draw upon critical theory, the social determinants of health, and social justice frameworks, to engage learners 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 critically analyzed. Evidence-based research and ethical considerations 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 healthy public policy locally, nationally and globally.
