PT 950 - Health Promotion and Wellness

(3)
The central theme of this course is individual, family, and community health over the life cycle. Students will learn to conceptualize health beliefs and behavior from a biopsychosocial framework, and to assess individual, family, and community health care needs and health care access through a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary lens. Students will be involved in developing wellness plans for individuals or families in the community. Students will learn to assess family health care needs, seek out community resources, and educate community members on specific issues related to their own health and well-being. There is continued emphasis on communication skills and collaboration via the interdisciplinary team concept emphasized in previous semesters. Students will also begin to apply knowledge regarding groups and communities by planning and participating in community health promotion and wellness activities.
