About

The effective delivery of public health policies requires the development of capacity and capability for professional disciplines working in organisations in the statutory, voluntary and community sectors to enable them to place their work in the context of a common agenda to improve health and prevent ill-health. Epidemiology is concerned with the methods of studying health-related events and states to control health problems. Epidemiologic data and an evidence base are necessary to plan, implement and evaluate programmes and services to promote the health and wellbeing of populations in all sectors of the community and to reduce health inequalities in the population.

This module is available as a standalone module / credit bearing module.
