Course Description

As a nurse, it is crucial to think critically about your health and wellbeing. You should also evaluate how your beliefs and attitudes regarding health inequality may affect your approach to public and private health in your daily practice.

This course will encourage you to consider the meaning of health, as well as holistic, medical and social approaches to it.

You will explore various health models and critique the medical model.

This course will allow you to understand what wellbeing is in practice and why it matters within the context of social reform and health promotion.

It is important for nurses to remember that healthcare access is not universal.

You'll be accompanied by Coventry health experts to learn about why health inequalities persist between rich and poor, and explore both social and behavioral factors.

Finally, we'll examine how to address these health inequalities. This includes examining the distribution power and resources within society.

This course is for nurses who are already experienced and want to learn more about how they can promote health.
