    Abstract

    • describe what is meant by socioeconomic differences in health, and the social and emotional determinants of health

    • understand how health inequalities are affected by the social and economic circumstances that people experience throughout their lives

    • discuss how factors such as living and working conditions, income, place and education can impact on health

    • identify actions for public health policy-makers that have the potential to make a difference in improving health outcomes within populations

    • appreciate the concept of social cohesion and social capital, and their role as potential protective factors in health

    • understand conceptual models that can assist in analysing these issues.

    Impact and interest:

    Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

    These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

    Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
