Learning objectives
- To learn the main infectious and non-infectious diseases associated with particular lifestyles, environmental and occupational risk factors;
- To learn the main occupational diseases in relation to the different work activities and the related prevention measures;
- To develop the ability to evaluate health and social epidemiological data and learn about their use for the purpose of constructing preventive-educational intervention and promoting health in the individual and in working and general communities;
- To develop the ability to intervene, in the immediacy of the event, in emergency situations of catastrophe and accidental environmental disaster, putting in place, as far as it is concerned, the necessary first aid measures, in order to guarantee safety.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course the student will have to know the main infectious and non-infectious diseases associated with particular lifestyles, environmental and occupational risk factors, as well as the main occupational diseases in relation to the different work activities and the related prevention measures . At the end of the course the student must also be able to evaluate the epidemiological health and social data and learn about its use for the purpose of constructing the preventive-educational intervention and the promotion of health in the individual and in working and general communities.
