Integrated Health and Social Care - Manchester Metropolitan University

We know that services for people are most effective when they are joined up and when health and social care professionals work together. It’s important to understand people’s physical health needs, their emotional needs and their social circumstances. This can help us to appreciate each person’s unique circumstances and work in joined up ways to find solutions. Traditional health and social care roles are changing. There’s a shift towards partnership working across the health and social care sector including within social services, charities, the NHS and social enterprises. We’ve designed this course to help you work across these settings so you can have a positive impact on people’s lives. You won’t simply learn the theory behind integrating health and social care, you’ll explore how it works in practice from working with service users to designing service provision. Topics might include how unevenly distributed resources across society affect a person’s life, how the support and care a person needs changes as they age or how to recognise a person’s strengths to make a difference to their life. You’ll also explore global representations and perspectives of health and social care. Alongside lectures and seminars, you’ll work in small groups to solve problems set by employers such as developing ideas for community projects around homelessness, poverty and isolation. **Features and benefits** - **Employability**- You’ll go on 120 hours’ worth of placement to put what you learn into practice. - **Teaching excellence**- You’ll learn from experts in a wide range of areas including substance misuse, communities, criminal justice and mental health. - **Guest lectures**- You’ll experience guest lectures by people who use health and social care services, as well as practitioners, to give you a deeper understanding of the sector. - **Industry mentor-** You’ll benefit from contact with employers and working professionals in every year of your course. In your final year, a sector leader will be your mentor.
