NUR 204 - Population Health


Semester Hours: 2
This course provides an introduction to concepts in population health as well as the interprofessional nature, key historical events, models and frameworks for understanding health problems in diverse populations.  Students will gain a greater knowledge of the disparities in diverse populations.  Social determinants of health influenced by healthcare, individual behavior, social environment, physical environment, and genetics highlight the need for community-based solutions to the disparities in healthcare.  Trends in changing healthcare reimbursement and models of reimbursement serve to determine health outcomes, shifting the responsibility of population health outcomes to providers, such as medical groups and health systems.  Case studies of significant population health challenges and achievements will be analyzed to illustrate how the health of groups can be transformed by working at multiple levels of the social ecologic model.  Methods for designing and evaluation the success of health interventions will be included in the learning process in an interprofessional learning environment, using holistic, scientifically sound, evidenced based and patient-centered mode.
