Not currently offered
Credit points: 15
In this subject students study the history of our understanding of health and illness in an international context. Comparative national and international health system responses to health issues are explored. Students are introduced to the social, environmental and biological basis for disease, and public health models developed towards minimising disease and illness, and promoting health across populations. Topics investigated through enquiry based learning teams include communicable and non-communicable disease and the impact of climate change on health. The role of evidence in developing our understanding of health and illness, how evidence is generated and how it translates into policy and forms the basis of practice underpins the unit.
