Please use research and references to inform and compile your responses.
The answers are to be objective and research based rather than subjective and opinion- based writing.

In your career you will need to appreciate and account for the impact of social determinants of health on the capacities of your students/patients/clients to implement behaviours conducive to health and wellbeing.

Answer:
5. Why is it essential to access accurate and current information, relevant and suitable for the target population, from credible research sources to inform health and wellbeing learning? If injury, accident and illness related information is pathogenic and not considered a priority in health and wellbeing learning, why does anyone involved in facilitating health and wellbeing learning need to access this data?
Answer:
Part C – Case studies – objectives for youth health.
Word Limit: 1000 words in total for Part C. Weighting – 50%
In 2015 the Healthy, Safe and Thriving: National Strategic Framework for Child and Youth Health (COAG Health Council 2015) identified six objectives that have actions for youth health and are measurable employing existing data. These are:
1. Young people are active, healthy and thriving.
2. Young people have lower rates of preventable injury and mortality.
3. Young people experience lower rates and impact of chronic disease.
4. Young people are supported in their mental health needs.
5. Young people reduce risk behaviours such as smoking, drug and alcohol use.
6. Young people make sound choices about their sexual and reproductive health. (AIHW 2016, p. 208)
Select one of the six objectives identified above and investigate how the social determinants of health could impact on an individual’s health and wellbeing outcomes in relation to the objective selected. Synthesise information and ideas to suggest a maximum of three recommendations for action to overcome these barriers and optimise health outcomes in relation to this objective. Critically evaluate and reflect on your recommendations to justify each action recommended.
STRUCTURE: Identify the objective you have selected in a heading, for example, Case Study: Young people make sound choices about their sexual and reproductive health and write your response to this objective. You may use sub-headings to guide or structure your response.
None of the responses in Assessment Task 2 are to be based on opinion. For each answer in Parts B and C, you must use substantiating researched evidence to support your response.
