About the course

The course is for students in science and healthcare programmes and is about environmental effects on health from a neurological/ psychiatric perspective. The aim of the course is to give a picture of the mechanisms behind the environmental risks and to give instruments to develop analyses and strategies, including interprofessional aspects. Risks addressed during the course are for example climate changes, exposure to toxicological substances, vulnerability, air and water pollution, pharmacological drugs in the environment, over/underuse of drugs, fetal risks, effects of warfare. The course also covers the health effects of resource scarcity globally. We deal with ethical and social aspects, economic drivers and the importance of legislation. Review of social development based on sustainability goals is also included.
