Looking for Health Psychology Challenges for Students to solve

Do you work in an organization in the health and wellbeing sector? Or does your organization have an interest in health and wellbeing? Do you desire the involvement of motivated students from Erasmus University Rotterdam to address and overcome the challenges your organization is dealing with? Then we are looking for you! 

Health and wellbeing issues 
Third year bachelor students from Erasmus University College would like to work on challenging issues related to health problems and promote a healthy lifestyle. During the Health Psychology course, students learn how to use theory and evidence to study why people live healthily or unhealthily, and what consequences this can have for health and wellbeing. 
Example questions that can be addressed by students: 

  • What are risk behaviours of scabies among students and how can they be prevented?  

  • What are motivations and barriers for getting a COVID19 vaccination?  

  • What are the causes and consequences of the use of laughing gas (nitrous oxide)? And how can detrimental effects be prevented? 

What will the students do? 

A team of up to 4 students will work on your health-related question and develop a final report with a logic model for a specific population to map the causes and consequences of a health-related issue. In a final presentation, students will share their findings and recommendations on how to improve health and wellbeing.  

What do we expect from you? 

  • Give an English case presentation to create a better understanding of your question (face-to-face presentation or via Zoom, Teams, etc.)  

  • Provide information and answering questions from students by email or phone calls (optional) 

  • Help with providing access to interviewees  

  • Attend the final presentation of your student team at your location of preference  

  • This will approximately take between 3 and 12 hours in total 

Practical information 

  • The course starts on April 2, 2024 and lasts until May 31, 2024
