About Public Health at Sheffield Hallam University

The course is ideal if you work or want to work at operational, managerial or strategic levels in public health. It improves the knowledge, skills, and practice of primary healthcare team members, community health workers and health activists. Public health is relevant to all sections of society and is a key feature of health and social policy. You address key questions including * how is the health of individuals, groups and populations determined? * how can health be promoted? * what skills are required for health promotion and the development of the public health agenda? * what are the implications of the new agendas? The course builds on the growing importance of health promotion, public health, and health and community development on national and international levels. Successful management of public health requires development of critical approaches to theory, practice, and outcome measurement. We give you the knowledge and skills to be more effective in your role. You develop knowledge in the 10 key public health competenciesand standards.
