M.S. - Health and Care
Technological changes in transport make it easier for communicable diseases to spread globally; domestic appliances and motor transport are reducing the population's physical activity; and medical technology is making it possible to prolong life, but at considerable financial cost. In all counties the 'business activity' of the care sector is increasing more rapidly than other sectors in the economy. In the developed world especially, increased demands upon public expenditure have provoked changes in social policy.
This course gives you an advanced understanding of the dynamics of policy making and decision taking in health and care so that you will be in a better position to influence care delivery through research or professional practice.
