Public health is high on the national and international policy agenda. This course looks at opportunities for health and social care staff to promote public health and discusses the reasons for action
Public health is everybody’s business. It is not just the role of the public health team or of the NHS. Both as workers and as citizens we all have a part to play in health improvement. This course invites learners to think about the national priorities in public health (Obesity, Smoking, Alcohol, Mental Well Being and Sexual Health) and discusses relevant factors such as poverty, unemployment and lifestyle.
