International Classification of Function, Disability and Health
This package was originally designed for undergraduates in Medicine at the University of Nottingham. It will also be useful to students in nursing, allied health professions and pharmacy. Practitioners in these fields, who are new to the ICF, will also find it a useful introduction. It describes the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), a classification system published by the World Health Organisation to describe health status. This system is widely used in r
Understanding and classifying a stroke
Stroke is the third largest cause of death in the UK after heart disease and cancer. It is also the single leading cause of severe disability in the UK. Classification of stroke is crucial in planning treatment and is a good indication of prognosis This Learning Object helps individuals understand how to make the diagnosis of stroke using the Oxford Stroke classification. It is suitable for any health care professionals involved in the management of stroke but especially doctors and medical stud
Marginal Analysis and Programme Budgeting
Meeting individual health needs and improving the health of populations within a finite budget is a challenge for health systems worldwide. Programme budgeting and marginal analysis (PBMA) is a tool for tackling this, and for putting some science behind the art of managing scarcity and competing demands. This module explores the definitions, tools and practical application of PBMA. Online interactive learning resource from HealthKnowledge website, for Public Health practitioners, healthcare work
This module challenges you to come up with ways to think more about climate change and the action your organisation can take to reduce its carbon footprint, whilst improving healthcare. Online interactive learning resource from HealthKnowledge website, for Public Health practitioners, healthcare workers and all those wishing to increase their public health skills.

The main aim of this study is to identify barriers and obstacles to providing and expanding ARV programmes in Nepal. Materials and methods: A qualitative approach consisting of in-depth interviews with three groups of stakeholders: policy makers, ARV service providers and ARV recipients were carried out. The transcripts were analysed using a thematic approach. Results: The estimated number of people in need was high compared with people currently receiving ARV in Nepal. With regards to the prope
The article looks at the lower physical activity levels in Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) groups as compared with general population in the United Kingdom (UK) could relate to barriers to engaging these groups in physical activity. Hence, the aim to conduct a review to examine UK primary studies reporting barriers to engaging BME groups in physical activity. Method: This is a narrative review of literature from 1970 to 2008. The search looked for English literature from five bibliographic datab
This course introduces fundamentals of radon physics, geology, radiation biology; provides hands on experience of measurement of radon in MIT environments, and discusses current radon research in the fields of geology, environment, building and construction, medicine and health physics. The course is offered during the Independent Activities Period (IAP), which is a special 4-week term at MIT that runs from the first week of January until the end of the month.
Over the course of the semester we will explore the full range of writings by physicians and other health practitioners. Some of the writer/physicians that we encounter will be Atul Gawande, Danielle Ofri, Richard Selzer, and William Carlos Williams. Students need have no special training, only a general interest in medicine or in public health issues such as AIDS, asthma, malaria control, and obesity. The writing assignments, like the readings, will invite students to consider the distinctive n
This course is designed to provide an understanding of how the human brain works in health and disease, and is intended for both the Brain and Cognitive Sciences major and the non-Brain and Cognitive Sciences major. Knowledge of how the human brain works is important for all citizens, and the lessons to be learned have enormous implications for public policy makers and educators. The course will cover the regional anatomy of the brain and provide an introduction to the cellular function of neur
Delight in the cycle of nature – bread has been considered to be the most important basic foodstuff for millenniums and should serve here as an example and as a model to illustrate the modern food chain for human beings.
