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.
