This programme will provide health promotion professionals working to deliver on the ambitions of the Healthy Ireland framework with the skills to plan and deliver multi-disciplinary health promotion projects with professional competence. The programme combines the development of expertise in Health Promotion, including skills in research, analysis and communication specific to that field, with skills in the planning and execution of complex initiatives in this field.
The programme includes taught online courses in three areas of specific relevance, namely:
- Concepts and Competencies for Health Promotion
- Health Project Planning and Design
- Public Health Research
These modules will all support a practice-based research project, which will give the participant the opportunity to use a major work-based project as the focus for learning and reflection while supporting the achievement of the employer’s objectives.
This programme is planned to be available for recruitment in January 2020.
