Global Health and Healing Bundle (Online)
Certificate in Global Healing Systems
Global healing traditions have a long and rich history that dates back thousands of years. Reflecting the specific and unique characteristics of their regions, these traditional healing systems provide the primary form of health care for the majority of the world's population.
In this certificate program, you'll deepen you knowledge of medical treatment by learning about these various global healing practices. We'll start with an overview of the field to get a sense of how these alternative practices differ from conventional medical systems. Then we'll explore in depth six global traditions: Ayurvedic medicine of India, the indigenous medicine of Central and South America, Native North American healing, the healing traditions of South Africa, traditional Chinese medicine, and Unani medicine of Eastern Europe.
Certificate in Healing Environments for Body, Mind, and Spirit
The design of a health care facility can contribute greatly to the well-being of patients, staff, and the wider community. In this innovative certificate program, you'll examine how Optimal Healing Environments (OHEs) impact the health of individuals and communities on a physical, social, psychological, and spiritual level.
You'll learn how evidence-based design can create environments that foster healing and support the mission of health care facilities. You'll explore the effect of all the elements of an environment, including color, light, sound, and art, and the role they play in supporting physical and emotional health. In addition, the program examines how a facility can use a focus on nature to create a sense of connection, how to benefit from the use of technology while mitigating the emotional stress that can result from it, and the importance of such environmental aspects as clean air and water.
Certificate in Infectious Diseases and Infection Control
Infectious diseases are a key concern for any healthcare professional. Globally, infectious diseases are responsible for more than 25% of all deaths, second only to cardiovascular disease. Millions more individuals are affected by the most common types of infectious diseases, which can have both short- and long-term health consequences.
This certificate program offers insights into infectious diseases that are essential for medical professionals. The program begins by examining basic techniques and procedures for preventing the transmission of infectious disease. Then you'll take a closer look at some of the most common and dangerous infectious diseases: influenza, pneumonia, tuberculosis, hepatitis, HIV/AIDs, zoonoses (diseases that are spread from pets to people), and tickborne diseases.
The program concludes with an examination of emerging global infectious diseases (EIDs), which threaten individuals, families, and communities throughout the developing world.
