Study primary care and international health at Queen Mary

The vision of the MSc International Primary Health Care is to build a vibrant inter-professional and interdisciplinary learning community of primary care practitioners who will work together under the guidance of expert tutors to explore how the principles and practice of effective primary health care may be achieved in different countries, health care systems, and local settings. There is no clinical component to this MSc, though students will be encouraged to apply any particular clinical interest.

This international primary care masters is part of a wider programme of study in global and international health. Underpinned by a commitment to the principles of social justice and fairness, these programmes will provide students with an understanding of the significance of the current global challenges for health care and public health, and will offer a multidisciplinary focus on global public health and primary care in a time of increasing health inequalities.

Queen Mary is committed to teaching and researching global health, and has assembled for this initiative an experienced team from across the university, led by professors who have previously established and run successful and highly prestigious programmes both online and on campus. Prof Allyson Pollock is one of the UK's leading public intellectuals in medicine, and is a world authority on global health and public health policy. Prof Trish Greenhalgh is one of the international stars of general practice, a leading educationalist in international primary health and enormously influential in primary health research. The programmes are based in the Centre for Primary Care and Public Health, which is responsible for leading global health teaching in the Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, the leading UK medical school for global health in the undergraduate medical curriculum.

Who is this programme for?

Students on the international primary health care programme will be established primary care practitioners who will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge from their varied practice settings around the world. Dealing with primary health care, the programme is concerned with core underlying principles, and so is of relevance to those working or planning to work locally in London, in the UK, or anywhere in the world where these principles apply, and at the local, national, or international level.

Possible career routes

Students who studied the previous MSc programme run by our team have gone on to become researchers, trainers, teachers and change agents in a wide range of primary care settings throughout the world.

Programme outline

In the first semester modules develop the key concepts and research methods and analysis. These present students with relevant methodological issues and challenges while providing interdisciplinary foundations. In the second semester students gain a more detailed understanding of areas of special relevance to international primary health care through the specialist module, Primary Health Care: Theory and Practice, and through elective modules that allow them to focus on the aspects of primary health of most interest to them.

Core modules

• Epidemiology and Statistics
• Health, Illness and Society
• Health Inequalities and Social Determinants of Health
• Health Systems, Economics, and Policy

Elective modules

• Primary Health Care: Theory and Practice
• Migration, Culture, and Advanced Social Determinants of Health
• Globalisation and Health Systems
• Globalisation and Contemporary Medical Ethics

Programme overview
This distinctive LLM programme examines how we should approach the greatest challenges and opportunities for law and policy as mechanisms to address health and wellbeing. It looks at questions including reproductive justice, social and mental health and wellbeing, health inequalities, and the diverse roles of social and political institutions in shaping health, law and society.

It therefore goes beyond traditional courses on healthcare law to look at the relationships between law, governance and health across society and governmental sectors. Students will enjoy the opportunity to study wide-ranging questions concerning the impacts of law, regulation, policy and practice on health and wellbeing.

The attraction and utility of this LLM lies in both its subject coverage and the range of transferable skills it promotes. It would be of benefit in many different practical settings and careers. It is suitable for students working or planning a career in policy, healthcare management, health regulation (including at local authority level), healthcare and social care providers, legal practice, public health, advocacy, NGOs, special interest groups or legal/policy research.

You will be taught by leading academics who combine internationally recognised research profiles with wide experience with organisations responsible for policy development, professional regulation and social advocacy. The programme includes core teaching in health law and governance, along with specialist units.

The University of Bristol Law School has a large and vibrant international student community and LLM students benefit from small class sizes taught by world-leading experts.

Programme structure

Students will take four units (120 credit points overall, 30 credit points each) and a compulsory dissertation (60 credit points). The units are made up of two compulsory core Health Law units, an optional specialist Health Law unit and an open choice of LLM unit.

Core units:
- Law, Governance, and Health
- Health Inequalities, Law and Society

Specialist Health Law units, one of which must be taken as part of the LLM*:

- Public and Global Health Law
- Law and Governance for Mental and Social Well-Being
- Health Law and the Body

The final option may be taken from the specialist Health Law units, or from any other LLM programme. These might include*:

- Law Gender and Sexuality
- Corporate Governance in the United Kingdom and United States
- Migration Law and Policy - International, European, and Human Rights Dimensions
- International Law and Human Rights
- Legal Perspectives on Sustainability
- Public Law

Careers

This programme develops specialist knowledge and understanding and transferable skills. Its content and approach to teaching and assessment supports diverse career paths in healthcare practice and management, health policy and regulation, healthcare provision, legal practice, public health practice, social advocacy (for example, in pressure groups or NGOs) and legal/policy research.

The LLM can be a starting point for careers in these fields, while also providing an appropriate programme of study for people already working in those areas.

This programme would be of interest to recent graduates in law, policy, politics and cognate fields, and of interest to anyone aiming to pursue a career in research.

The MSc Global Health, Law and Governance programme will introduce students to some of the key international frameworks and instruments in global health. It will analyse the international organisations and legal instruments that influence national public health policies, and will critically examine the World Health Organization, the World Trade Organization and key international conventions and protocols. It will incorporate global governance and global health governance, helping set the frame for how governance interfaces with the making of laws (and also regulatory regimes and treaties) and their enforcement or implementation. Global pandemic surveillance and management, key issues around the control and ownership of viral material used for production of vaccines, and the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control are all examples of important issues in this field.

The Global Health, Law and Governance masters is part of a wider programme of study in international and global health. Underpinned by a commitment to the principles of social justice and fairness, these programmes will provide students with an understanding of the significance of the current global challenges for health care and public health, and will offer a multidisciplinary focus on global public health and primary care in a time of increasing health inequalities.

The master of science in health systems administration provides strategic skills for today’s health care management professionals. Read more

Program overview

The master of science in health systems administration provides strategic skills for today’s health care management professionals. Now, as never before, health care is rapidly transforming. The pace of technology and innovation are changing how, when, and where healthcare is provided, and who is providing it. Concurrently, health care consumers have high expectations for quality and responsiveness to their needs—delivered in a cost-effective manner. To provide these strategic skills, this post-graduate degree builds on a foundation of courses in policy and law formation, healthcare economics, finance, insurance reform, innovation, information technology, systems, operations and leadership. The course work is built on a foundation of skills and knowledge sets identified and endorsed by national health care leadership organizations. Graduates of the program are prepared to assume clinical and business leadership roles across the diverse healthcare industry.

The health care industry is changing rapidly due to healthcare reform and the Affordable Care Act. The MS degree encompasses course work that provides the graduate with a breadth of knowledge in areas key required for effective management of healthcare organizations: research, governance and economics, finance, health insurance, process improvement, project management and informatics. The curriculum also provides graduates a broad view of health care issues that administrators and leaders must be prepared to deal with effectively: change and innovation, leadership theory and application, bioethics, and human resources. Finally, the curriculum prepares the graduate to develop and implement plans designed to create and steer health care organizations of the future. Graduates will not only lead today’s healthcare organizations, they will create patient-centered facilities of the future.

Plan of study

The program requires 39 credit hours at the graduate level and can be completed in two years or less. Students may complete the program on a part-time basis. Students must maintain a 3.0 grade point average. Toward the end of their program of study, students complete a capstone project consisting of a community research experience.

Community care law and the law relating to people with mental health problems affect virtually every person in the UK at some time in their lives. Read more
Community care law and the law relating to people with mental health problems affect virtually every person in the UK at some time in their lives. Despite the fundamental importance of the law in these fields, its study has been largely neglected by University Master’s programmes.

The LLM Social Care Law addresses this omission by focusing on community care and mental health law, policy and practice in England and Wales.

The programme explores the origins of the law in both fields: the growth of the asylum and the development of the Poor Law and critically analyses the current legal regimes as well as the policy, research and theoretical socio-legal contexts in which these legal regimes exist.

Distinctive features

The LLM Social Care Law course:

• provides you with a general appreciation of current issues in specific areas of law, both domestic and international;
• stimulates a critical approach to evaluation of current and proposed regulation and cultivates independent and original thought;
• enables you to undertake in-depth research and demonstrate advanced knowledge in specific areas of law;
• provides opportunities to attend human rights-based conferences and seminars run by the Centre for Health and Social Care Law.

The LLM Social Care Law course is very flexible and offers a wide range of modules providing you with the ability to customise the course to meet your own professional and/or employment needs or interests.

Structure

The course can be completed in one year with full-time study and in two years by part-time study.

You must select at least two of your four taught modules and complete the dissertation in the area of Social Care Law and you may select up to two modules from those listed in any other LLM programme or from a combination of LLM programmes.

The programme is delivered in two stages. Stage One (the taught component) comprises four 30-credit modules. Stage Two comprises the dissertation.

For a list of modules for the FULL-TIME route, please see website:

For a list of the modules for the PART-TIME route, please see website:

http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/taught/courses/course/social-care-law-llm-part-time

Teaching

Study for an LLM is intensive and challenging and it is important that you take full advantage of the teaching that is provided in order to succeed. Attendance at classes and dissertation supervisions is compulsory and we will expect you to be well prepared.

Our teaching is very flexible and your modules may be delivered through seminars or a combination of lectures and seminars. Other teaching methods include the online use of discussion boards, self-access study packs and formative quizzes and activities.

Modules may be diverse in content to cater for the fact that for some LLM programmes there may be a high proportion of international students or students with previous qualifications other than in law. Modules are typically led by experienced staff actively engaged in research relevant to their subject area.

Assessment

The School of Law and Politics makes use of both formative and summative assessment.

Formative assessments do not count towards your degree but are designed to give you the opportunity to practice for your summative assessments and enable you and your tutors to assess your progress in your modules. Formative assessments will normally involve written coursework or a class test or may comprise individual student presentations.

Summative assessments count towards your degree. Your marks in these assessments count towards your formal progression from Stage One (taught modules) to Stage Two (the Dissertation), and towards the determination of your final award. Summative assessments in Stage One will vary by module but will typically involve written coursework (5,000 word essays), unseen examinations or pre-release examinations. The Dissertation (up to 15,000 words) comprises the Stage Two summative assessment.

Career Prospects

A law degree doesn’t restrict graduates to careers within the legal profession. Our law graduates enter professions as diverse as finance, sales and marketing, digital communications and recruitment.

We are committed to extending extracurricular opportunities, helping to enhance your CV in a competitive graduate job market. We work in partnership with lawyers, charities and voluntary organisations to give you the opportunity to practise and extend their skills and we run several Pro Bono schemes and provide advice to members of the community on different legal issues.

Upon successfully completing the LLM programme you may have the opportunity to continue your legal study through the School’s PhD programme or through the Centre for Professional Legal Studies professional programmes (the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course).

Overview

Our course aims to explore the health of women and children from a global public health perspective. Students will explore individual health issues, both physical, psychological and social that commonly affect women and children, and also explore the wider political and societal issues that impact these.

Women and children, both in the UK and around the world, face inequality on a daily basis. These inequalities come from lack of access to healthcare, education, employment opportunities, technological advances, legal support, and social, cultural and political opposition (Marmot, 2010). The World Health Organisation has recognised this and explicitly targeted women and children in three of its Millennium Development Goals; to promote gender equality and empower women; to reduce child mortality; to improve maternal health, alongside wider goals to improve universal access to education and to eradicate poverty that also disproportionately affect women (WHO, 2015).

This course focuses on the health of women and children. During their ‘core’ modules, students will be encourage to explore individual health issues, as well as exploring the global legislation that impacts on women’s and children’s health, and understanding how they can implement and influence policy change. The option modules will allow the student to tailor their learning to their individual practice; whether caring for the critically unwell women, doing a physical assessment of a new-born infant (NIPE), understanding the global impact of responsive parenting or as an effective leader or manager of a service.

Modules & assessment

Core modules -

- Global Challenges to Women and Children's Health:
This module is designed for an inter-professional audience, and has a global public health focus, considering issues affecting women and children around the world. It is designed to provide insight and exploration of the major public health issues affecting the health of women and children. Each of the main areas explored will include an overview of the illness/problem as well as consideration of the social, cultural and political context and influence upon it and evaluation of how this leads to inequality and may reduce life chances.

- Research Proposal - Women's and Children's Health:
This module provides a critical overview of research philosophy and the major methodological and design approaches to research in order to equip you to appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of published research, whether in your specialist area or in the health, welfare and social care field.

- Political Power and Policy Drivers affecting Women and Children's Health:
As part of everyday inter-professional practice, practitioners working with women and children are affected by policy drivers in a number of ways, however, differences may be apparent in how these are translated to healthcare and how they are embedded into practice. Implementing new policy requires practitioners to use their, power, influence and interpersonal skills. The module will enable the student to critically evaluate their own knowledge and skills which underpin their current practice.

- Postgraduate Major Project:
The Major Project, which is central to the Masters award, enables students to demonstrate their ability to synthesise learning from previous modules and use this learning as the basis for planning, conducting and writing up a research or work-based project. This project provides the opportunity for students to demonstrate: the ability to raise significant and meaningful questions in relation to their specialism; depth of knowledge which may involve working at current limits of theoretical and/or research understanding; critical understanding of research methods and its relationship to knowledge; awareness of and ability to develop solutions to ethical dilemmas likely to arise in their research or professional practice; the ability to draw meaningful and justifiable conclusions from information which may be complex or contradictory; the capability to expand or redefine existing knowledge to develop new approaches to changing situations and contribute to the development to best practice; the ability to communicate these processes in a clear and sophisticated fashion; the capability to evaluate their work from the perspective of an autonomous reflective learner.

Optional modules -

- Applied Leadership & Management:
This module provides an innovative exploration of leadership and management in healthcare, and examines their impact on organisations including wider considerations in the external environment. This module will enable students to assess and analyse the roles that leaders and managers play in a range of organizational contexts; and to apply the principles and techniques of leadership and management in a range of contexts.

- Care of the Critically Unwell Woman:
This module will enable you to develop in-depth knowledge and skills when caring for the critically unwell woman, during the child bearing continuum. Work-based learning is incorporated into the module in order to recognise and value your professional expertise. While practicing midwifery in an area where women with high dependency needs will be cared for, you will also spend clinical time developing your skills in the high dependency or intensive care unit.

- Newborn Infant Physical Examination (NIPE):
This module will focus on the specialist knowledge and the clinical skills that are required to enable you to competently undertake a thorough Newborn and Infant Physical Examination (NIPE) in clinical practice. You will utilise in-depth knowledge and understanding that you have gained to enable you to recognise the deviations from the normal to initiate appropriate care and referral. Critical reflection and completion of the practice documents will allow you to further identify your learning needs and develop your scope of professional practice.

- Global Impact of Responsive Parenting:
This module is designed to examine the positive health impact responsive parenting has on the mother and infant dyad, the wider family, society and the Globe. Historical child rearing styles will be reviewed and debated to highlight their negative effects on child development and on society. The module will explore the current understanding of neurophysiology of infant brain development and how parenting interactions can affect this process. The module will conclude with positive practical steps for health professionals to encourage responsive parenting with the parents they work with every day.
