Students must be working in a clinical area relevant to the module content
This degree-level module is aimed at practitioners seeking to develop their knowledge of key public health principles. It will be particularly relevant to those working or seeking to work within community settings. It covers a wide range of topics including: epidemiology, public health models, determinants of health, WHO strategies as well as health profiling and community health needs assessment.
Teaching will be provided through a programme of lectures and interactive seminar sessions. Within seminars students will have the opportunity to explore the key principles covered during lectures in smaller groups. This will provide the opportunity to learn from colleagues and examine the application of key principles to different areas of practice.
Support material will be available for students to access through e-learn and each student will be encouraged to make use of module tutorial support.
