About this webinar

Health permeates every aspect of our lives including our physical, psychological and social wellbeing. Historically, the biomedical model has focused on the physical health of the individual. This course situates health and wellbeing in its wider societal context, and critically examines the role of health in society as a whole. We will examine how we construct our concept of health, how it has evolved over time, what the real indicators what of health are, and how Covid-19 has changed our view of health.

Topics covered: 

  • Sociological theories of health and wellbeing
  • How concepts of health have evolved over time and reflect our societal values
  • Key indicators of health in contemporary Ireland such as demographic change, equity, access, quality, and efficiency
  • Sláintecare and reform
  • Healthy Ireland and a new social contract
  • Ireland on the international stage
  • Covid-19, the impacts of health, and how the pandemic has changed the role of health in society
  • Innovations, eHealth and the digital future
