Ethnicity Health and Health Care
This module is concerned with a critical sociological examination of the concepts of race and ethnicity and an investigation of the relationship between ethnicity, health and healthcare.
It examines the ethnic patterning of physical and mental health and the delivery of health care to minority ethnic communities, primarily within the UK but with reference to other societies where relevant.
In so doing it addresses some specific topics such as maternal health, asylum seeker and refugee communities, gypsies and travellers the role of minority ethnic workers in the delivery of healthcare in the UK, and the management of diversity. It also aims to critically assess the nature and impact of policies to address ethnic inequalities in health.
The assessment will take the form of a phase test and an essay.
