Module overview

This module will explore the role of health psychologists in promoting health, designing and delivering health and illness related interventions. We will consider key factors and processes in the delivery of health care, including health promotion, and care for primary care, community-based and tertiary (hospital-based) patients and their families. This will include an examination of intra- and inter-personal influences on patient behaviour and health outcomes. We will critically examine and learn to apply major frameworks for intervention development and evaluation. Sessions will provide relevant theoretical and empirical background and will enable opportunities for the development of problem-solving, team-work and communication skills.
