Interdisciplinary Social Sciences in Health (ISSH) is a new and developing subject area in the School of Health in Social Science.
It brings together social scientists from a range of academic disciplines, including sociology, geography, social anthropology and health care studies, who share an interest in the overlapping concerns of research/policy/practice in health - particularly interdisciplinary approaches in research and teaching.
We pursue collaboration with other subject areas within the School of Health in Social Science and other relevant Schools to promote innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to research in health care. We address current issues in a changing health and social care landscape emphasising effective knowledge exchange for maximum impact for our research.
