The Public Health (Specialist Community Public Health Nursing) course at University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) embraces a family/child/workplace-centred public health role with individuals, families, and populations, and focuses on improving health and tackling health inequalities. The approach requires you to work within a dynamic socio-cultural and service provision context across traditional boundaries, to network and develop services in partnership with service users, other professionals, and the voluntary sector. You'll learn to lead, assess, work collaboratively, evaluate public health provision, and accept responsibility and accountability for the safe, effective, and efficient management of that provision.
