Health (driving and substance impairment)

Everything is here for NCEA Level 3 students to analyse substance impaired driving (SID) as a New Zealand health issue.

The issue in a nutshell: It can be unsafe to drive when taking medication which impairs or affects your driving ability. Driving while impaired is a problem in New Zealand, affecting drivers of all ages.

Through this unit, students examine the implications for the well-being of people and society and the major determinants of health.  From this analysis, they  recommend health-enhancing strategies.  High quality data is provided along with resources designed with SOLO Taxonomy. 

Supports assessment for Achievement Standard 91461: Analyse a New Zealand health issue (5 credits at NCEA Level 3).

This curriculum resource was written by teacher Haley Charles and trialled with students at Upper Hutt College. Read more in this news article:
