Non-Infectious Disease (3 Credits)
Non infectious disease

The topical area for this unit considers the nature of a range of non-infectious diseases including autoimmune, inherited and congenital disorders. The relationship between disease and life style (epidemiological factors) is an important combination where it is considered that diseases can have a multi–factorial cause. Epidemiological research has played a role in health promotional campaigns which have been introduced as part of health and wellbeing initiatives to attempt to reduce the incidences of diseases.
