In the Faculty of Health at Staffordshire University we take a very broad view in our definition of health and therefore the Faculty has a broad and diverse range of areas of interest. This enables us to consider traditional health areas but also to focus on wellbeing and promotion of health in its widest context. Through our work with other faculties across the University we are able to further increase the diversity of our health provision.
With bases in Staffordshire and Shropshire and excellent working relationships with NHS Trusts, local authorities and businesses across the two counties the Faculty is well placed to support learning and development through teaching, research and consultancy across the local area.
The Faculty of Health provides a broad range of awards from foundation degree to PhD. The Faculty brings together a range of experienced and professional academic staff in the areas of health care, sport and exercise, social work, advice work, public health, biomechanics, leadership, mental health, older perople, medical education and spirituality.
The faculty has three research centres which focus on different areas of the Faculty’s work. The centres are actively engaged in undertaking research, consultancy and education relevant to their area of interest. The emphasis is very much on applied research and the link with programme areas and informing practice and teaching.
The three research centres are:
• Centre for Ageing and Mental Health
• Centre for Practice and Service Improvement
• Centre for Sport, Health and Exercise Research
