HSCI 308 - Evidence of Wellness
Much of what we know about daily aspects of wellness is based on anecdotal or limited evidence.  Wellness is optimal quality of life; being healthy in body and mind. What exactly is the evidence of wellness and how does one analyze the data that exists?  What additional data would we want to know and how can that be accomplished?  This requires input from multiple disciplines and knowledge of different levels of evidence and research. This course will provide students with the knowledge of the existing evidence, how to interpret this evidence and afford them the expertise to evaluate new data in the future. Students will regularly analyze manuscripts and will have good working knowledge of the following statistical terms; number needed to treat, number needed to harm, confidence intervals, relative risk, odds ratio, among other terms commonly used in the medical literature.
