Course Overview

Health and care service provision is a rapidly changing, politically charged area of employment. Globally, access to services can be complicated by societal, economic, and geopolitical issues, however, all those working within both health and care strive towards similar ideals of compassionate, safe, and effective care.

This course has been designed to meet the needs of registered and practicing professionals such as nurses, paramedics, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and radiographers. By exploring policy background locally, nationally, and globally, and critically evaluating influences on decision making and provision of services, it gives students the opportunity to engage in critical inter-disciplinary thinking about the direction of travel for their own professions.
