In Year 1 you will develop an awareness of the modern landscape of care and learn about the social, cultural, spiritual, legal, political and economic influences impacting care delivery. You will be introduced to the human lifespan, both physical and psychological, and gain an understanding of the concepts of health and ill health. You will also consider the patient journey in depth and reflect on a range of patient experiences of health, illness and care.
