Course contentThe course will develop your public health mindset and give you the confidence and skills to engage with the new public health agenda. The vocational focus of the course aims to produce practitioners who ask questions and know how to set about answering them through critical thinking and reflective practice.
Central to this course is our commitment to the process of enabling people and communities to increase control over their health and well-being. This approach provides practitioners with the tools and knowledge to tackle inequalities in health and work towards combating social exclusion. Teaching public health from this perspective means that the curriculum is based on a social model of health. It draws upon the multi-disciplinary, multi-professional context of public health and engages with the interface between theory and practice.
The course provides an opportunity to examine concepts of health, illness and disease in a social context, the social construction of health, social patterning of health, illness and disease and the effectiveness of interventions.
