##

This course explore the ways that health and social care service design can lead to, but also address, inequalities. Inequalities are caused by very similar factors everywhere, they just look a little different, depending on the setting.

We are using Scotland as a case study to allow us to engage in a manageable discussion of the issues. Scotland is a small but varied country, with densely populated cities and almost uninhabitable mountain ranges. There is wealth and there is poverty. It is a great example of country that faces its challenges head on, and aspires to eliminate inequality.

The course is aimed at those working in health and social care who are interested in reducing inequalities and addressing inequity in their own context. While the course is designed to give professionals the practical tools needed to deliver more equitable outcomes, it is also suitable for anyone who is interested in health inequalities wherever they might be.
