NURS 4109: Health V: Global Health for Nursing Practice
|Course Format||Lecture 4.0 h + Seminar 0.0 h + Lab. 0.0 h|
An exploration of health is incomplete without an understanding of health within the global context. This course provides students with opportunities to consolidate their knowledge of health, family, and community by reflecting on emerging health issues and trends faced by populations around the world. This course will also examine a select number of political, environmental, and ethical factors that give rise to the unequal distribution of health resources. The role of nurses in global health, sustainable development, the burden of disease and various international health initiatives will also be the focus of the course. Delivered in a mixed mode format.
