ADVANCED ISSUES IN HEALTH

PHE4AIH

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students develop advanced skills and knowledge in understanding the relationships between theory and method in health research, clinical and non-clinical health practice and evaluation and applying this knowledge in practice. This subject includes examination of the relationships between ontologies, epistemologies, methodologies and methods used in the health domain. Interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary and multi- disciplinary theories and methods are presented for evaluation in terms of plausibility and efficacy. In addition, it provides students with an understanding of the various hierarchies of knowledge utilised in the health sciences (including the relationships between sociology, psychology, biomedicine, anthropology, economics, feminisms, etc.) and the impact of power relations on the theoretical and methodological debates.
