Health Impact Assessment is an online unit provided by Open Universities Australia in association with Curtin University. In essence, it explores the dynamic discipline of health impact assessment, considering its historical context and development. You will also learn how to think critically about the ways in which health impact assessments inform evidence-based policy decisions.
To begin with, you will consider the role and essential purpose of both health impact assessment and environmental impact assessment. Following this, you will examine the entire process of HIA – from preliminary research to report preparation and evaluation. Finally, you will also consider HIA as a constantly evolving field, examining improvements in the overall framework and processes.
Ultimately, Health Impact Assessment provides you with a comprehensive understanding of how to successfully undertake a HIA from start to finish. Through the examination of changes in the field, and how HIA informs policy, you will also develop a critical, evaluative understanding of the discipline.
