Child Public Health
The aim of this programme is to equip students with the knowledge of the importance of health in early childhood for future national health, wellbeing and growth. An understanding of the importance of child health and the many factors that affect it is therefore relevant to all those working directly with children and in wider policy, governance and research development. The programme will use a bio-psycho-social approach to critically evaluate the multitude of factors that influence child health and the role of multi disciplinary professionals, policy makers and government in child health promotion and governance. Overall, it will emphasise the importance of the early years upon future child and population health and consider the public health policies and interventions established to promote and enhance this.
