Global Health & Quantified Self explores the aspects of globalisation and health that link to digital health and selftracking. The programme is taught in close collaboration with the Quantified Self Institute and is the first programme in the world to incorporate the Quantified Self into a Bachelor’s level programme.

Hanze UAS belongs to the Healthy Ageing Network Northern Netherlands, which is the European reference network for active and healthy ageing. With its tradition of national and international cooperation, the knowledge it has available and the ties between the public and private sectors, the Northern Netherlands is the logical testing ground for innovation and new care concepts. You will encounter these during your time at summer school.

The programme gives you the unique opportunity to learn about the increasingly globalised world and digitalisation and its effects on health. The programme focuses on trends in health, health care and the effects of digitalization from the global perspective, and explores the challenges that we as health professionals will face in the next 10 years. With an eye to the future, the programme will provide you with knowledge about prevention and self-management in health that will be benefit your career.

The programme covers three areas of study:

  1. Global Health, Globalization, International Organizations & International Cooperation

Quantified Self concentrates on technical applications to support self-monitoring. This promotes self-knowledge and allows us to analyse a client’s health information on aspects such as nutritional intake or how the client has slept recently. Wearable technology such as activity trackers, smartphones and smartwatches generate this information. You will explore a number of state-ofthe-
art self-quantification technologies together with the significance of these for health and social care
professionals.
