This course is designed to introduce students and practising health professionals to a critical analysis of caring in the mixed economy, namely the social context of care. The influences which shape the way we think about current social issues, how we define health and social needs and what we expect of health and social care services will be explored.
Work on this course will enable you to place recent or current changes taking place in your own field of practice within this wider social context. It will provide you with an opportunity to develop your critical understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the mixed economy of care, and to analyse its impact on your own work.
