Monroe County Community College's Health Sciences Division has introduced a new Issues and Trends in Health Care course (HLTC 200) for current and prospective health sciences students or anyone else who is interested in the topic. The course is being offered online and starts August 23, 2023.

The purpose of the course is to develop an awareness of the current trends and issues in health care. Students will examine how legal, ethical, political and economic principles affect the health care professional and their ability to deliver high quality patient care. 

Students will also explore the concepts of health, wellness and illness as they apply to the changing population. Contemporary issues -- including social justice, advancements in technology, the COVID-19 pandemic, interprofessional collaboration and changes in the health care environment -- will also be discussed.
