Course Description

You will have an opportunity to trace the development and evolution of health improvement, and will be able to develop your own health improvement skills with an awareness of a broad range of issues. The module will increase your awareness of the implications of a range of health improvement strategies, the challenges and dilemmas they present, and the skills needed to critique and evaluate them in a useful way.

The module brings together a wide range of inputs from nationally and internationally recognised
experts in the field. While some of the concepts or approaches presented in the sessions may
represent a challenge to your current values and ideas, we hope that you will use this opportunity

  • Clarify your own views on the definition of health and health improvement
