317.615.01 TOPICS IN RISK ASSESSMENT
Uses a case study approach of a selected risk-based public health issue to integrate student’s application of the skills in the risk sciences (risk assessment, risk management, and risk communication) developed in the previous three Risk Sciences and Public Policy Certificate Program core courses to critically analyze the development and implementation of public health policy.
By the conclusion of the course, students will have: 1.improved their skills in the application and integration of the risk sciences to a public health issue in the context of the 2009 National Academy of Sciences (NAS) “Science and Decisions” report framework for risk-based decision-making; 2. improved their ability to identify and critically assess key science and policy issues involved in the application of the risk sciences to public health policy decision-making; and 3. improved their ability to apply the skills learned in courses 317.600, 317.605, and 317.610 in the development of solutions for addressing public health problems.
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
identify and critically assess key science and policy issues involved in the application of the risk sciences to public health policy decision-making
develop solutions for addressing public health problems
