Frontiers In Public Health

This module introduces you to the foundational principles and theories which underpin health interventions and your evaluations. You will learn about the rights and values that drive ethically sound interventions for improving health. The module will explore how to plan, evaluate and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of health interventions in a range of contexts.

You’ll cover concepts in epidemiology, including mortality, morbidity, and disease distribution. You’ll also learn about the history, development, and contemporary importance of public health in our societies, and the techniques and strategies for dealing with complex public health issues. The module aims to develop student skills for access and applying a range of digital technologies involving relevant computer packages, data analysis software and apps appropriate to improving public health delivery. You will learn to use information and different communication technologies for enhancing digital literacy and capability in a variety of public health contexts. In year 2 there is a focus on helping you with the chance to create and build on your skills to apply, appraise and evaluate public health concepts, principles and methods for improving population health. You will be taught using a mixture of lectures and small-group seminars, ‘hands-on’ skills workshops, student-led discussions and interactive simulation.

By understanding different cultural approaches and unpacking both insider and outsider viewpoints, you will discover how health means different things to different people and institutions. Taking a life cycle approach, you will explore these various meaning- making processes through the study of experiences common to all humans, such as birth and death. You will become acquainted with theories that help you engage with critically analysis and health promotion agendas.
