NURS 604 - SOCIOCULTURAL INFLUENCES ON HEALTH


Credits: Three
Focusing on variables reflecting diversity, this course provides an analysis of the social and cultural variables impacting attitudes, behavior, and social trends related to health and health care. The intersection of important diversity related variables that differentially impact the health of certain groups of people are examined, including gender, race, class, ethnicity, disability, age and sexuality. With the tools of social epidemiology, social issues emanating from this intersection are explained from a sociological perspective and discussed from the perspectives of patients, providers, and policymakers.
