Nursing 307 The Geopolitics of Healthcare Summer 2017 - Prof. Irene Rempel

This course will examine the social, political, historical and economic events that have shaped healthcare from the late 1800’s to the present in this country and abroad. Additionally, it will address the connections between a society’s wellness (that is, its physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, interpersonal and environmental state of being) and its ability to function and co-exist amicably with other citizens of the world. With this in mind, students will explore how well healthcare is meeting the needs of not just one country, but the planet, as we are all implicated in each other’s well-being, whether or not we are healthcare providers.
