Semester: 2
Quota: 140
Department: GEOGRAPHY

Coordinator: Dr Ronan Foley (GEOGRAPHY)
Overview Overview
 

The aim of this module is to explore some of the critical questions facing health care systems and the contribution which geography can make to understanding how such systems are structured and delivered. The module is split into two connected sections. The first discusses different international health care system models and then considers the Irish health care system and how it compares. The second section focuses on key discussions around the planning of health care services; emphasising inequalities associated with access, utilisation and deprivation and how these in turn are shaped by wider system structures.
