Health is everybody’s business. Government campaigns and policy encourage healthy lifestyles. The issue is never out of the media. Health and social care practitioners trying to ‘make every contact count’ are called upon to support people to adopt healthier lifestyles and to serve as role models by keeping themselves in shape. All of this is focused on encouraging individuals into good health and healthy lifestyles.
This course explores how nutrition, exercise, alcohol, smoking and stress are influenced by individual factors, family dynamics, locality and wider society. Biological, psychological and social issues are considered and students consider how best to support people to make personal changes. Discussions of lifestyle and social change connect your study to public health concerns.
