Britain was one of the first countries to develop a system for combating premature death and managing chronic disease (CD). In this course designed for nursing, pre-med, social work, and health care management majors, students will gain insights into how the British pioneered in important aspects of health care through visits to the Science Museum, the Florence Nightingale Museum and Oxford University. By connecting with students from the University of London and visiting medical facilities, you will learn about the roles of health care professionals and compare the CD management models and strategies used in Britain with those of the United States.
