BPK 140: Contemporary Health Issues
→ know what’s a model and why they’re important
→ compare/contrast… medical/illness model, risk factor model, holistic model, health as
wellness
What is Health?
→ complete state of physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of
disease or infirmity (MC QUESTION)
→ “a resource for everyday life, not objective of living”.... AKA you don’t live to be healthy, but
being healthy improves the way you live your life (MC QUESTION)
→ life expectancy, infant mortality rate are often used as INDICATORS OF POPULATION
HEALTH (no single measure to test individual health)
Life Expectancy
→ Life span: what you could live up to
→ Life expectancy: what those in that species USUALLY live to
*****KNOW GENERAL TRENDS!!******
→ life expectancy increased since 1920’s (WWI ended in 1918, increase in economy =
improved health systems)
women tend to live longer than men
→ baby boomers during 1950-1960 post war
→ colder territories/ smaller provinces = short lives
STEPS TO APPROACH THIS…
1) Observe trend
2) Make hypothesis
3) Gather data
Possible causes of infant mortality:
→ lack of contraceptive knowledge
→ lack of financial support
→ spread of disease
→ culture and environment requires large families, which are hard to care for
Top 10 Causes of Death in Canada
→ [cancer, CVD… lower risk of 1, lowers risk of other], diabetes, Alzheimer’s
Health Models
→ way of representing a concept/idea (offers different perspectives on health)
