Note: We are redeveloping the summer course for 2022 and are currently looking at ways to offer a hybrid/online version. Besides our summer course, we offer several exchange courses. One of these courses is Global Health which accounts for 6 American credits (5 ECTS). If you are interested, please visit this page or send an e-mail to ihs@org.hanze.nl.  


Global Health explores the aspects of globalisation and health related to digital health and self-tracking. Hanze UAS is part of the Healthy Ageing Network Northern Netherlands, which is the European reference network for active and healthy ageing. Thanks to national and international cooperation, the knowledge available and the efficient communication with the private sector, the north of the Netherlands is a logical trial area for innovations and new care concepts, which you will of course encounter during your time at the summer school.

Introduction

Quantified Self concentrates on the increasing, worldwide development of technical applications to support self-monitoring by individuals. This promotes self-knowledge and allows us to analyse personal health information about aspects such as what your client's nutritional intake has been or how he or she has slept recently. Wearable technology such as activity trackers, smartphones and smartwatches generate this information. You will explore a number of state of the art self-quantification technologies, as well as the significance of these digital (health) developments in terms of health and social care professionals.

Programme

The programme offers you the unique opportunity to familiarise with an increasingly globalised world, digitalisation and its effects on health. The course focuses on trends in (digital) health (care) from a global perspective and explores the challenges that we, as health professionals, will face over the next 10 plus years. The summer school, with a view to the future, helps you to gain knowledge about prevention and self-management in health, which will be beneficial during your career.
