Recognising the political, social and environmental determinants of health and wellbeing are fundamental in allowing nurses to challenge health inequalities and discrimination. This module prepares students in the fundamentals of health promotion and protection, within the context of these determinants. It takes a critical public health perspective to identify how political and social structures have consequences for the health and wellbeing of people and populations. The module applies this emergent understanding to the role of nurses in health promotion and health screening to improve and maintain the health, wellbeing and welfare of the people, communities and populations they work with.

The University makes every effort to ensure that this information on its programme specification is accurate and up-to-date. Exceptionally it can be necessary to make changes, for example to courses, facilities or fees. Examples of such reasons might include, but are not limited to: strikes, other industrial action, staff illness, severe weather, fire, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack (whether declared or not), natural disaster, restrictions imposed by government or public authorities, epidemic or pandemic disease, failure of public utilities or transport systems or the withdrawal/reduction of funding. Changes to courses may for example consist of variations to the content and method of delivery of programmes, courses and other services, to discontinue programmes, courses and other services and to merge or combine programmes or courses. The University will endeavour to keep such changes to a minimum, and will also keep students informed appropriately by updating our programme specifications. The University would inform and engage with you if your course was to be discontinued, and would provide you with options, where appropriate, in line with our Compensation and Refund Policy.
