Co-designing planetary health curriculum for health professions education: empowering students and increasing educator capacity

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

Climate change presents the greatest threat to human health of our time, yet our health professional graduates, who will be at the forefront of its impacts, are not being effectively prepared to address its causes or consequences. Prioritising the voices of health professions students through interdisciplinary, systems-based approaches, and including Indigenous knowledges into curriculum development, will ensure the best possible outcomes for population and planetary health. This project will engage students to co-design a suite of teaching and learning materials, empower and inspire Faculty educators to integrate these into existing curricula and evaluate the impact on educator and student capacity.
