NRSG 733 - Health Risk Interventions and Outcomes

This course will enable students to analyze and synthesize theories, models, and research related to health risks. Genetic, social, cultural, behavioral, economic and environmental factors that contribute to health status are analyzed. Both modifiable and no modifiable risks will be addressed, but the focus will be on strategies to minimize or modify existing risk factors. Scientifically based interventions that may assist individuals and groups to achieve optimal health outcomes are developed and critiqued.
