HLTH13035 - Health in all Policies

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Health in All Policies (HiAP) is a public health movement and policy approach that contributes to the improvement of population health, equity, wellness and improved policy outcomes across participating sectors. This unit outlines how and why HiAP was established and what benefits it has had on promoting health across populations. Factors that influence the implementation of HiAP are examined, including Health Impact Assessment (HIA) and Health Lens Assessment (HLA). This unit will allow you to bring together assessment, research and evaluation skills learned throughout your course in order to consider where and how health fits in the policy cycle.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Online Quiz(zes) 25%
2. Written Assessment 30%
3. Written Assessment 45%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Source: Unit evaluation
Feedback
The work book which provides a practical application relevant to graduate employment of each week's content was well received by students (4.8).
Recommendation
Retain the workbook as the major assessment item. However, have it submitted in two parts (mid term and end of term) to allow students to benefit from earlier feedback, and encourage them to complete the work throughout the term.
Action Taken
The workbook was retained as an assessment item and students were encouraged to complete the workbook on a weekly basis. The workbook will be updated before the 2020 offering and students will be able to submit the workbook in two parts.
Source: Unit evaluation
Feedback
Revised unit structure and content to be consistent with World Health Organisation training on Health in All Policies
Recommendation
The revised course structure and content has been well received by students. Recommend ongoing monitoring of the literature (journal and grey literature) for evolving issues and new case studies, particularly in Australia, to maintain relevance and currency. Where resources allow consider guest lecture from member of South Australian government's Health in All Policy team.
Action Taken
The unit structure was reviewed by the previous unit coordinator and updated literature was incorporated into the 2019 offering.
Source: Student feedback
Feedback
The workbook assessment is content-heavy and some of the questions were confusing.
Recommendation
Review workbook content, reduce the number of activities in the workbook and revisit questions for clarity.
Action Taken

Feedback
Assessment tutorials were poorly attended by students.

Survey students at the start of term to gauge appropriate times for online tutorials. Schedule after hours 'drop in' tutorials for students if appropriate.
Action Taken
