MUSCULOSKELETAL INJURIES/DISORDERS AND PSYCHOLOGICAL HEALTH
Credit points: 15
Work-related musculoskeletal and stress related mental health disorders are among the most common and costly workplace problems. In this subject, work-related determinants of health are reviewed within a broad, macro-ergonomics systems framework to develop an understanding of some of the mechanisms and pathways via which people's jobs and working environments can affect their physical and psychological health, safety and wellbeing, both positively and negatively. This subject enables students to develop their knowledge of the aetiology and potential prevention measures to reduce the incidence of complex health problems such as musculoskeletal and stress related mental health disorders.
