2 The aim of the Master programme Management, Policy Analysis and Entrepreneurship in Health and Life Sciences (MPA) is to provide students with an academic attitude and skills in the field of interdisciplinary research on the interface of beta science and society aiming to formulate strategies to solve complex societal problems. The programme focuses on conducting research on the interface of science and society aiming to contribute to the solution of complex societal problems. The programme provides, besides strengthening of the bachelor scientific background, a broadening of the knowledge and skills in disciplines such as policy science, sociology, management studies, and sciences and societal studies. Students learn to analyse (complex) societal problems related to the health and life sciences; to effectively communicate and collaborate with researchers of different scientific disciplines (other than health and life sciences) and societal actors; and to formulate strategies to solve (complex) societal problems by conducting interdisciplinary research. Within the Master programme MPA students can specialise within four specialisations: -Policy -Management and Entrepreneurship -International Public Health -Communication The year schedule can be found at the FALW-website. Further programme information can be found at the FALW-website. A complete programme description can be found at the FALW-website.

Puente Rodriguez MA Lecture, Study Group, Computer lab - To acquire critical knowledge regarding different policy models and theories - To master the correct use of central concepts in political and policy discourses. - To further deepen your analytic skills with respect to the critical assessment of a complex societal question or dilemma in the health and life science; - To learn to integrate science- specific knowledge with the knowledge and skills of other disciplines of the social sciences - To practice skills in data collection and analysis - To learn to set up valid lines of argumentation; - To learn to translate research findings into policy recommendations; - To get experienced in writing a policy advisory report; - To improve your communication skills; - To improve your skills in working effectively in a project team, through team building, team analysis and feedback. Governmental policy affects millions of people and is thus object of intensive debate and target of strong societal forces, like political parties, media and interest groups. Being an advisor or policy maker requires a thorough understanding of the dynamics of policy making, as well as from the psychologal side as from the more social structures and their influence on a deliberative democracy. The course contains several lectures on theoretical concepts and models concerning policy analysis. Furthermore you will be challenged, under supervision, to apply and practice these concepts and models in the project assignment. From the very first day, you will be part of a project team of about ten students. You are confronted with a real policy problem from an external commissioning institution (e. g. a nongovernmental organization, a Ministry, an advisory council). Within those 4 weeks you will collect data by literature review and interviews and conduct an interdisciplinary analysis on the basis of which you provide an advice. Specific attention is paid to working in a project team and team building. At the end of the course, you prepare an advisory report. On the last day of the course you present the report to the representative of the external institution who commissioned the project. In that presentation your team will highlight the main results Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam - - M Management, Policy Analysis and Entr Pagina 10 van 70

Lectures, Training; Project assignment Written exam (25%) and individual evaluation based on personal performance in the project team (50%), and assessment of various group products (report and presentation (25%)). Exam has to be passed successfully. Buse, Mays and Walt: "Making Health Policy" Target group Compulsory course within the Masterprogramme Management, Policy Analysis and entrepreneurship for the health and life sciences (MPA) and the Societal differentiation of Health, Life and Natural Sciences Masters programmes. The case is policy analysis and advice, but the exercised methods and skills are equally applicable to strategic marketing advice or evaluation studies. The project integrates the learned lessons from the first two compulsory MPA courses: Qualitative & Quantitative Methods. Behavioral Genetics Course code AM_ (450003) Period Period 3 Credits 5.0 R.S.L. Ligthart Teaching staff dr. C.M. Middeldorp, R.S.L. Ligthart Teaching method(s) Lecture, Computer lab To provide the Master of Neuroscience students with a solid basis in human behavior genetics and to provide an overview of empirical results. Behavior genetics focuses on the inheritance of individual differences in complex traits. Such traits are most likely influenced by multiple genetic and environmental factors. The effects of genetic and environmental factors may be additive or interactive and lead to individual differences in complex traits and diseases that are quantitative rather than qualitative. In this course theory and principles from population genetics and biometrical genetics will be introduced, including genetic and cultural inheritance of complex phenotypes. Designs of family, adoption and twin studies and their applications to variation in cognitive abilities, personality and psychiatric disease will be discussed. The advances in molecular genetics have generated substantial progress in identifying the genetic basis of heritable Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam - - M Management, Policy Analysis and Entr Pagina 11 van 70

16 traits using linkage and genome-wide association approaches. Both approaches will be reviewed and illustrated using recent studies aiming to identify genes genes underlying the vulnerability for psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and mood disorders. Practical exercises will guide the student through some of the available online tools that facilitate the interpretation of gene-finding studies. Lectures, computer practicals Written examination; open-end questions (50%). Practical assignments and papers during the course (50%).

Topics that will be dealt with in detail include: intellectual property, portfolio management, finance, risk capital, grants and subsidies, team building and people management, different legal entities, fiscal and legal aspects when starting a new company, SWOT analysis in the life sciences and clinical trials. The practical part consists of bringing the knowledge acquired during the classes into practice in an assignment in which you develop a (personal career) businessplan. Lecturers, self study, assignment. Written exam and assessment of the (personal career) business plan. Both parts need to be passed.

Caput Community Genetics Course code AM_ () Credits 6.0 prof. dr. M.C. Cornel Genetics and genomics may lead to a new understanding of genetic contributions to human disease and the development of rational strategies for minimizing or preventing disease phenotypes altogether. However, translation appears to lag behind: the new genetics will not revolutionize the way in which common diseases are identified or prevented. This course aims to give an overview of current and future applications of medical genetics/genomics in health care. The student analyses current debates on pros and cons of these applications, as well as scientific developments in genetics/genomics and Technology Assessment related to these potential applications. Existing genetic care in clinical genetic centres, genetic screening and prenatal diagnosis is studied. Future scenario's are debated, including the development of tailored prevention programs. From the British text book topics will be selected that are currently relevant for Dutch Health Care. Students analyse the state of affairs for these topics in the Netherlands, the stakeholders and parties involved in the debate, the positions taken by parties, to what extent an offer in health care exists or could be developed, what discussions are Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam - - M Management, Policy Analysis and Entr Pagina 13 van 70

ISBN-13: Caput Dilemmas in the Implementation of Public Health Programmes Course code AM_ () Credits The student has acquired in-dept insight in organization, management and policy in the field of Public Health in the South, with a specific focus on the implementation of vaccines programmes - Has acquired insight in the constraints in the implementation of Public Health programmes i.e. vaccination programmes in the South - Has applied the acquired insight in the implementation of results and interpretation and to evaluate the efficacy of vaccines programmes. - Has assessed constructively and systematically strategies to solve the constraints and to improve the efficacy of vaccination programmes through national and international organization This caput will increase the student's knowledge in the North- South relation and particularly on the implementation of Public Health Programmes in the South with focus on an international context. Furthermore, the course will give an overall overview of the organization and policy strategies of organizations involved in the implementation of public health programmes which directly is linked with the containment course. Special attention is given to analyzing the dilemmas and challenges in public health and to generate ideas for future development. The analysis will focus on i) the experiences in working in the field and community based health programmes e. g. vaccination programmes; ii) the constraints and opportunities of the various implementation strategies; iii) methodological aspects of inter disciplinary research; iv) monitoring and evaluation of public health programmes; v) communication strategies to policymakers, professionals and the general public. This theoretical course comprises self study and three discussion meetings. After a short introduction the student has to study various scientific articles that are then critically analyzed and discussed in a subsequent meeting.

Self study. Course co-ordinator: E. Ruitenberg. For information and application: Caput Institutionalising Participatory Approaches in the South Course code AM_ () Credits 3.0 dr. M.B.M. Zweekhorst - To develop a detailed understanding of the importance of participation strategies for sustainable development - To understand the difficulties that have been identified for institutionalising interactive approaches within existing organisations - To obtain insight into different strategies to institutionalize interactive approaches. - To acquire knowledge on the learning organisation. During the past three decades participation has become increasingly visible as an issue in development. It is recognized that participation is a key element in poverty eradication and sustainable development. Methodologies to enhance participation are now commonly used in development projects and 'participation' has become a development orthodoxy. However, it is one thing to acknowledge the effectiveness of participatory approaches, but another to apply these approaches consistently over longer periods of time. This requires institutionalisation of these approaches within the organisations concerned, so as to build the necessary capacity. Most organisations are not well adapted to the application of participatory approaches. Some organisational change is therefore likely to be necessary if participatory approaches are to be institutionalised successfully. In this theoretical course you study in depth scientific literature about various theoretical concepts and practical experiences of institutionalisation processes of interactive approaches that were undertaken by organisations in the South. This theoretical course comprises self study. After a short introduction you study various scientific articles that are then Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam - - M Management, Policy Analysis and Entr Pagina 15 van 70

Target group Optional course for Master students Management, Policy Analysis and Entrepreneurship in health and life sciences (MPA), Societal differentiation of the Health, Life & Natural Sciences. Self study. Basic knowledge on organisation and management is required. For more information and application: Caput Knowledge Integration and (patient) Participation Course code AM_ () Credits 3.0 prof. dr. J.E.W. Broerse - To acquire in- depth understanding of different types of knowledge and their specific characteristics and values; - To acquire detailed knowledge concerning models on knowledge integration and transdisciplinarity, and their key concepts; - To acquire the ability to translate from theory to practice with respect to participation strategies. - To acquire insight into the theory and practise of patient participation in health research. We are living in an increasingly globalized World. Science and policy is facing increasingly complex problems that cannot be effectively addressed from one scientific discipline and one perspective. Solving complex problems requires the integration of knowledge from different scientific disciplines as well as the integration of scientific knowledge and practical, experiential knowledge about the problem context. This type of broad knowledge integration is called transdisciplinary research. The topic of transdisciplinary research is therefore becoming increasingly important. During this 2- weeks course you will read various scientific articles that contribute to different visions and models to describe and facilitate knowledge integration. Particular attention is paid to the role and value of `lay' knowledge (for example patients, experiential knowledge) for research in the health and life sciences. As a specification of knowledge integration you will analyze different practices of patient participation in health research as described in literature. You will address questions, such as who should participate, when, how and why, in order to realize patient participation in health research in the most effective way.
