What is Allied Health Sciences?
Allied Health Professions are a distinct group of health professionals who apply their expertise to prevent disease transmission, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate people of all ages and all specialities. Together with a range of technical and support staff, they may deliver direct patient care, rehabilitation, treatment, diagnostics and health improvement interventions to restore and maintain optimal physical, sensory, psychological, cognitive and social functions.
Better patient care is the ultimate goal of all healthcare activities and is provided by doctors, nurses and allied healthcare staff. Provision of health care is a team effort and the Allied health worker is an integral part of the healthcare team, who, if not available, affects the quality of healthcare provision.
Changes in the health industry and emphasis on cost-efficient solutions to health care delivery will continue to encourage expansion of the allied health workforce. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates there is currently a worldwide shortage of about 2 million allied health professionals (considering all health workers aside from medical and nursing personnel) needed in order to meet global health goals.
The aim and objective of these programs are to equip the students with the relevant professional knowledge, skills, techniques and ethical values to enable them to apply their acquired expertise at a level between the doctors and the patient for efficient health service delivery.
