Overview

This practice-focused module will enable you to develop a sound knowledge and understanding of the complexity of communicable diseases in the context of Public Health. It is applicable for students working in all healthcare settings. We will examine the history, causes and epidemiology of communicable diseases from a broad public health perspective.

Associated morbidity and mortality, nationally, internationally and globally will be considered together with trends in established and emerging infections. Methods to prevent and control infection will be explored including outbreak management, using surveillance, screening and vaccination strategies. You will have the opportunity to increase your knowledge and understanding of the legal and ethical aspects of public health practice.

You will be assessed 100% through coursework.  The module may be taken as a standalone module over 6 weeks or as part over a programme of study.
