We draw on theories derived from cognitive, social, clinical, occupational and health psychology. Approaches studied are informed by research methodologies that provide an evidence base for their implementation. Issues addressed at the individual level include stress, coping and mental health. At group level, the interactions of different professional groups, impacts of new health technologies and the effects of multidisciplinary teamwork are examined. Concerns at the healthcare delivery level include evidence-based practice, patient safety, government policy and economics.This Psychological Approaches to Health MS rich programme offered at the University of Leeds draws on many levels of analysis, aspects of psychological theory, research, practice and policy. You’ll be taught by subject experts, who actively research and publish in their area, and work with the NHS, charities and other organisations to improve patient safety and promote workplace health.
The programme is accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as suitable for continuation onto doctoral programmes offering ESRC funding.
