These principles are then applied to an understanding of communicable and non-communicable diseases and assessment of health inequalities through tools such as health needs assessment and their role in protecting and improving population health.

Public Health: Policy and Practice

Introduces students to the concepts and underpinning theories associated with the public health approach and practices related to the promotion and protection of population health. It reviews historical as well as contemporary public health approaches, policies & strategies. There is a particular focus on examining health inequalities and measures to reduce them. The aim is to identify local, national and international strategic responses to both improving health and reducing health inequalities.

Research Methods

Encourages students to develop their skills as a potential producer of research, as well as their ability to systematically evaluate research outcomes from a variety of sources. In addition, students engage in a variety of data analysis techniques. The module covers quantitative, qualitative, mixed, creative and participatory methodologies.

Health Improvement

Encourages students to develop knowledge and competence in the area of health improvement. The module covers a number of core health improvement approaches: health promotion, prevention, health behaviour change and community participation. It considers the relevancy and value of these approaches to different population groups from a global perspective.

Health Protection

The components and structure of health protection activity are examined. The risks to public health from both communicable and non-infectious environmental hazards are explored in detail. The infrastructure of health emergency planning is critically analysed.

Option Modules:

​Violence

Violence is now regarded as a critical public health concern. The impact of violence on the health of individuals, families and the wider society adds to an increasing burden of ill-health and cost to health and other welfare services. This module critically examines a range of key issues related to violence and health from international, national and local perspectives. It demonstrates the need for an interdisciplinary public health approach when addressing the causes of violence, building prevention control strategies, and promoting safety. The Public Health Institute is a World Health Organisation (WHO) Collaborating Centre for Violence Prevention http://www.cph.org.uk/expertise/violence/.

Systematic Review

​Provides a complete guide and hands on approach to developing a research question and learning the methods and key processes involved in completing a systematic review. Systematic review is a cross cutting methodology which can be used in a variety of disciplines and through interdisciplinary collaboration. The module can be taken by anybody from any discipline who wants to increase their skill set in the methodology. The focus is on application of the systematic review methods to a chosen field of investigation.

Work Related Learning

This is either a project that participants undertake at their place of work or as part of an organised work related placement. The project forms the basis of an action learning process whereby participants reflect on their ability to achieve personal and organisational goals, solve problems and meet self-appointed learning outcomes.

Global Health

Aims to examine the key processes of globalisation and how they impact on the health of populations and their environments. Key public health risks are identified and their strategic response at the global level evaluated.

The Masters in Public Health Nutrition, from Liverpool John Moores University, helps you develop the knowledge and skills required to work in this growing industry.

-Study for this new Masters degree full time (over one year) or part time (over two years)
-Benefit from staff expertise in nutrition and public health as you gain the knowledge and skills required for a career in this growing sector
-Join a research active team and take part in ongoing projects
-Experience interactive practical sessions and workshops alongside theoretical learning
-Boost your career options with employment opportunities in the public and private sectors
-This course will only run subject to minimum number

The aim of this new MSc programme is to meet the needs of relevant graduates wishing to develop a career in the field of public health nutrition. Graduate students will be provided with the knowledge in nutrition and public health, the skills and networks to develop a career in this growing industry.

A public health nutritionist understands how diet influences the health of different groups within the wider population. This requires an understanding of the scientific principles that underpin nutritional requirements, as well as an interdisciplinary understanding of the complex factors that influence food choices and eating behaviours of a population, and how such concepts can be applied to public health. Public health nutritionists are expected to find themselves in health promotion advisory and policy/advocacy roles as well as engaged in research in the UK and internationally.

In essence, the programme will provide the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to perform as an effective employee in the multi-faceted field of human nutrition.

Staff from the teaching team include members of professional bodies such as the Nutrition Society and British Dietic Association (including active involvement in committee work) and have successfully secured internal and external research funding; and regularly present at national and international conferences. Staff are involved in a range of collaborative research activities with universities within the UK and internationally; work with international organisations such as the World Health Organization, and national bodies such as the National Institute of Health Research, Department of Health and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). On a local level, staff also work closely with health services, local authorities and community groups.
