Slide 2

Learning Objectives Define principal terms Explain the fundamental relationship between the earth and wellbeing Explain effect of natural elements on wellbeing Explain part of ecological wellbeing experts

Slide 3

Performance Objectives Understand what is ecological wellbeing Understand extent of issue definition Understand method for tending to characterized issue Understand the part players required in critical thinking

Outline Definition of Environmental Health Interdependent Relations Environmental Effects on Health Systematic Approach Interdisciplinary Roles

Slide 5

Definition: \'Wellbeing … " \'… is a condition of finish physical, mental and social prosperity and not only the nonappearance of malady or infirmity\'(WHO, 1948) \'Wellbeing is just conceivable where assets are accessible to address human issues and where the living and workplace is shielded from life-undermining and wellbeing debilitating contaminations, pathogens and physical hazards\'(Who, 1992a)

Subsequently, nature of wellbeing relies on upon the earth

Slide 10

Interdependent Environments A social meaning of environment is an element of scale, limits, spatial closeness and beneficiary populaces When considering a worldwide scale, center is on the impact of an unbounded situation, e.g. air, on all populaces anyplace

Slide 11

Interdependent Environments When considering neighborhood scale, center is on impact of both a limited and an unbounded domain, e.g. water and air, on a subpopulation nearest to the introduction occasion The nearby scale is a subpart of the worldwide scale

Slide 12

Population Perspective of Relations All populaces Human populace Community, country Family Individual

Slide 13

Health and Environment Perspective of Relations Environmental wellbeing Public Health Occupational Health Family Health Personal Health

Slide 14

Environmental Effects on Health The pointers of advantageous ecological impacts are life span and maintained usefulness. Two degrees of unfriendly natural impacts are: harm ( syn. include: weakening, broken, faltering ) with diminished life span or demise ( syn. include: life-debilitating, terminal, harmful )

Slide 15

Environmental Effects on Health Injury does not rashly end life, but rather can thwart the ability to capacity without bounds potential Death ends life and is the most extraordinary antagonistic condition of wellbeing This method for characterization is straightforward and thorough

Slide 16

Systematic Approach without an all inclusive meaning of \'good wellbeing\', no less than an all inclusive idea of unfriendly wellbeing impact, e.g. debilitated, disease, useless, \'not typical\' or \'not well\', must exist to such an extent that comprehension the idea brings about a reaction

Slide 18

Systematic Approach so as to recognize and examine antagonistic conditions of wellbeing, a key precise approach of wellbeing issue ID and portrayal must exist and be executed This approach is outlined as takes after:

Slide 19

Systematic Approach Determine the source and nature of dangers Determine the introduction pathway Measure the impacts Apply controls however conceivable (Moeller, 1992)

Slide 20

Interdisciplinary Roles To actualize the deliberate approach, part players are required Three noteworthy classes of part players are: the ecological wellbeing issue specialists , the natural issue responders and the wellbeing issue responders

Slide 21

Interdisciplinary Roles Health issue agents: screens populaces to distinguish wellbeing patterns, trying to recognize what is hurtful from that which is safe measures the scope of impacts of wellbeing patterns to describe degrees of unfriendly force recognize potential perils, potential pathways of dangers, and populaces vulnerable to risks

Slide 22

Slide 23

Interdisciplinary Roles Environmental issue responders: concentrate on the wellbeing peril that has been recognized and described investigate the earth of the presented populace to see what controls are required and what controls can be actualized to minimize danger of repeat and danger of future event where method for control does not exist, it might be important to create

Summary Environmental wellbeing is the broadest extent of wellbeing issue definition Environmental wellbeing thinks about the effect of the earth on populaces It is a populace based science that can be scaled to study individual inside populaces Problem definition and potential determination is conceivable through the usage of an efficient approach
