Description: 
The first of two capstone courses in the MPH program, this course presents the principles and methods for the effective design, selection and implementation of public health interventions to address environmental, social, and behavioural risk factors. Students will determine when interventions are justified; differentiate between individual and population level interventions; describe various types of interventions; use theory and evidence to select and design interventions including the appropriate mixes of intervention types, sites, and delivery systems. Emphasis is placed on developing a final project that integrates methods, concepts and theories in public health through reading and problem-based learning.
