Course Overview

This module focuses on the primary theme of modifying/changing behaviour through application of models and principles of behaviour change to impact on health and well-being.It will teach the theories underpinning behaviour change and students will discover how to apply specific models and principles to improve the long term health of service users.

Please note: In your programme you may sometimes be expected to role play and engage in simulated clinical scenarios with other students, such as the practice and observation of practical skills in physical contact with other students. For some specific practices, this may necessitate modification of dress - e.g., to shorts and t-shirt. These activities will be conducted in a professional, safe, respectful and culturally sensitive way, under the supervision of academic staff, according to a defined protocol. This does not apply to Clinical Pharmacy practice modules as all of these modules are distance learning.
