Leadership and Change in Public Service Management

Health Assessment Skills
This module is to introduce students to the knowledge, principles, skills and techniques, to support the undertaking of holistic assessment. The module is designed for students working in a variety of settings and whose assessments may lead up to establishing medical diagnosis.
The Scope of Public Health
This module aims to provide an understanding of the scope, nature and elements of multidisciplinary public health in order to increase awareness of the collective perspective in enhancing the health of populations. It will examine underpinning theory and its application to contemporary public health practice, including the issues surrounding health needs assessment in determining public health priorities for action.
Reviewing Research for Professional Practice
This module essentially enables students to examine a body of research evidence and develop skills in critically reviewing selected literature of relevance to health studies or professional practice. The conduct of the review will enable students to build upon and enhance their skills and knowledge base in research and project management.
