Environmental Health

11 weeks
April - June
Thursdays - Lectures 9.00-11.00 a.m., Seminars 2.45-4.00 p.m.

What is it about?

The development of understanding regarding the role of physical environment in human health. Issues relating to evidence and particularly environmental data, indicators and their interpretation. Topical issues in environmental health and notably the role of environment in the health improvement agenda.

Who is it for?

The module has relevance to those working both in health protection and health improvement and those who are keen to learn more in an area where epidemiology, risk communication and prioritisation present particular challenges.

Why should you undertake it?

The socio-ecological model gives physical environment its rightful place in the complex systems which create and destroy health but does not immediately provide the insights to direct action. Things are changing within environmental health. This module introduces opportunities for discussion and exploration of new ideas within which all disciplines are valued contributors
