Task 2: Poster (800 words)
Task aims
The purpose of these tasks in relation to this course is to provide opportunities to: examine various influences on the health of Aboriginal peoples; apply the knowledge and skills you have gained in the course to case studies; create resources which could be used in community centres, conferences, and other professional presentations; and reflect on ways you and others can change their involvement regarding First Peoples’ Health.
Task description
Explores a range of health issues relevant to Aboriginal peoples.
You should read and understood the instructions and check the marking criteria provided in the task checklists.
You will make a poster that gives an epidemiological overview of ONE of these chronic health conditions, prevalent among Aboriginal peoples:
• Cardiovascular disease
• Diabetes
• Kidney disease.

To assist you in responding to the task, you have been provided with a list of resources and a poster template. Make sure you use the resources provided but also you should look for sources beyond this. The marking guide for this assessment states -Conducts extensive research beyond course readings, using credible academic sources.- This is the criteria you need to meet.
Once you have chosen your topic and read through all your resources, complete the poster as follows:
• Complete the labelled boxes with responses which are concise, directly related to the topic, and cover the key points required.
• A poster should be relatively quick to read. This means that you need to use sub-headings, dot points, bullet points, and colour to create visual impact.
• Ensure that you add two relevant items which give visual impact (e.g. images, diagrams, graphs or tables).
• Support your responses with evidence from the resources, which are appropriately paraphrased, acknowledged, and referenced using the Harvard Referencing Style with in-text citations and a reference list (10 or more).
