About This Webinar

Differences in socioeconomic status, as assessed by educational attainment, income and occupational status, are associated with large disparities in health. Linked to a variety of health-related behaviours, socioeconomic status impacts prevalence of obesity, smoking, physical inactivity, high blood pressure, alcohol consumption and more.

Socioeconomic Position will explore the ongoing area-based measures for monitoring health gaps between socioeconomic groups. Facilitated by Tessa Boyd Caine, CEO of Health Justice Australia, a panel of experts will explore the Index of Relative Socioeconomic Disadvantage (IRSD) and how to advance equity and inclusion in our learning communities.

Panelists include*:

  • Rosemary Calder, Director, Australian Health Policy Collaboration
  • Sharon Friel, Professor of Health Equity and Director of the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet)
  • Jarrod Ball, Chief Economist, CEDA

*Panelists subject to change.

Get to know:

  • How to map health risk factors by socioeconomic position
  • Ways to disrupt disadvantage and further self-determination
  • Innovative ways to provide care to people across socioeconomic borders
