This course is designed to challenge and encourage you, as veterinary students, to explore the relationships between population health and public health, animal health and human health, and clinical and population-based health practice. If we are successful, the process of exploration will continue throughout your graduate school education and training so that when you graduate, you will be better equipped to define your role as a veterinarian, and that of the veterinary profession, in public health.

This course focuses less on memorizing facts and more on understanding concepts, less on finding the right answer and more on applying critical thinking. The life of an individual animal may not depend on what you do here, but in the real world your contributions may help to shape the future direction of Veterinary Public Health and the health of animal and human populations.

Hodges’ Health Career (Care Domains) Model provides a conceptual framework upon which users can map problems, issues and solutions across four knowledge domains: Interpersonal; Sociological; Scientific; & Political (Autonomy). The public may also be taught to use the model, enabling engagement, understanding and concordance in planning and outcome evaluation.

Brian Hodges' original notes, a resources page and links (800+) are included. Additional material on health informatics and the potential role of visualization in care assessment and evaluation can also be found.

In April 2006 a blog related to Hodges' model was created: 'Welcome to the QUAD':

http://hodges-model.blogspot.com/

The blog includes a bibliography and a growing archive of posts that are also tagged. There are plans to create a new website using the content management system Drupal. There is an eclectic mix posts that includes examples of using the domains of the model.
