Minor Biomedical and Health Interventions

2019-2020
Deze opleiding wordt aangeboden in het Engels. Sommige van de omschrijvingen zijn daarom mogelijk alleen in het Engels beschikbaar.

This minor builds on recent developments within the field of biomedical and health sciences and places them in a broader perspective (e.g. societal, managerial, political and economic). In our current time we face many challenges in health care due to new and emerging infectious diseases, changing disease patterns, demographic changes, rising costs of health care and globalisation. At the same time, new scientific developments result in innovative products and services, such as novel pharmaceuticals, neurotechnologies and telemedicine. Ideally, the scientific developments would be able to address the current challenges successfully. However, reality sometimes proves otherwise. Technical innovations are not taken up by patient groups, vaccination programs are unable to reach proper vaccination levels, societal movements halt further scientific developments, etc. What are the underlying causes for these undesirable outcomes and how could we in the future create a better match between the needs in health care and developments in biomedical and health sciences? This minor provides you with the first steps to answer these questions.

Minor Biomedical and Health Interventions
Omschrijving
This minor builds on recent developments within the field of biomedical
and health sciences and places them in a broader perspective (e.g.
societal, managerial, political and economic). In our current time we
face many challenges in health care due to new and emerging infectious
diseases, changing disease patterns, demographic changes, rising costs
of health care and globalisation. At the same time, new scientific
developments result in innovative products and services, such as novel
pharmaceuticals, neurotechnologies and telemedicine. Ideally, the
scientific developments would be able to address the current challenges
successfully. However, reality sometimes proves otherwise. Technical
innovations are not taken up by patient groups, vaccination programs are
unable to reach proper vaccination levels, societal movements halt
further scientific developments, etc. What are the underlying causes for
these undesirable outcomes and how could we in the future create a
better match between the needs in health care and developments in
biomedical and health sciences? This minor provides you with the first
steps to answer these questions.
