Welcome to Incredible India

A land of extremes, from majestic maharajahs palaces to the slums of Old Delhi, from the chaotic traffic of the Capital to the relative calm of the rural towns, India is a land whose spirituality and mystical charm has always drawn people from all over the world. Its confronting, its dirty, its chaotic, its overcrowded, its unpredictable and more….. but it is also absolutely amazing, colourful, magical and totally fabulous!!

Why choose India to study public health? While this is an extraordinary country, we will witness first hand many of the public health issues that negatively impact the health of a population, and investigate the effect of interventions, the barriers faced, and the ongoing outcomes on the population.

The concept of public health is founded in our Nursing tradition. Florence Nightingale was the first Nursing Theorist and the founder of educated and scientific nursing. She wrote widely on the environment factors affecting health and identified these as pure fresh air, pure drinking water, effective drainage, cleanliness, and light.

Her environment concepts remain as relevant today and in this Golden Triangle Study Tour we will explore the impact of environmental factors on the health of a population. We will also investigate the impact of adequate nutrition, poverty, homelessness, literacy, communicable disease, air and water quality, immunisation, child welfare issues, and the impact of disability.

These determinants of health care and the impact on the population are transferrable to any public health setting in any country. You will compare and contrast your knowledge gained here to the Australian experience in both urban and remote communities.

Synopsis

This Study Tour is of educational interest to all Nurses regardless of their discipline. Friends and partners are welcome to join us. We will visit health related facilities and learn about their purpose, their challenges, and their achievements.

We will be inspired by the efforts to improve health and welfare in India and saddened when we look at social issues such as acid attacks, caste violence and sexual assault. Education will be delivered both in a seminar setting but also in various locations we visit. Sessions will be interactive as we explore and learn about public health issues together.

The library consists of material supplied by the Presenters, which can include any of the following:

  • Research documents, links to external information and recorded presentations

The research documents and recorded presentations form part of the Continuing Professional Development activities.
