Health professionals consistently cite health systems, models of care, time and money as some of the most major limiting factors in delivering effective lifestyle and social interventions. This subject will analyse innovative solutions to delivering lifestyle and social medicine by assessing multiple models of care in varied geographical and cultural populations that deliver genuine lifestyle and/or social change. This will include reviewing the strengths and limitations of the current medical and health model, multidisciplinary care, shared medical appointments, lived experience peer to peer models, digital and online platforms, public and professional education modalities, proactive community and workplace strategies, rural and Indigenous community models. In addition, brief overviews of the business structures of select models will be explored to assist students in practically understanding these models.
