Global Public Health  (NRT058)

This module offers a critical exploration of public health in the UK whilst inviting students to compare and contrast other countries’ responses to the health challenges of the 21st century. The module equips practitioners with the knowledge and skills to search for the health needs of populations, communities, families and individuals; to stimulate awareness of those needs amongst health care providers and users; to influence and respond to health policy that tackles those needs and creatively plan and deliver health enhancing activities (Cowley &Frost 2006).

As the module is taught on a shared learning principle, in conjunction with the Specialist Community Practice Health Nurse students, there is an additional element to your learning and development in that through linking with those whose full time role is within Primary Care you will be introduced to the culture and experiences that the SCPHN students bring to the module.

Module content:

  • Theories and perspectives of public health
  • Epidemiology
  • Health inequalities
  • Policy
  • Health promotion
  • Psychological theory
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Community development
