A programme of bite-sized sessions on key public health issues has been developed by Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare and Public Health England.
All Our Health features a wide range of free resources for all health and care professionals to improve their knowledge, confidence and skills in preventing illness, protecting health and promoting wellbeing.
There are currently 25 brief e-Learning sessions, covering a range of public health issues and health visiting teams may like to view the following topics:
Each session uses facts and statistics to highlight the importance of addressing each public health issue and signposts learners to other trusted sources of information.
There are also three interactive townscapes available that focus on childhood obesity, breastfeeding and smoking in pregnancy. Each townscape takes a place-based approach to consider what action can be taken on these important public issues.
“Health visitors, as leaders of the Healthy Child Programme, have a vital role in improving outcomes for children and families. Health visiting and public health nursing teams have the opportunity to focus on improving outcomes and reducing inequalities. The All Our Health resources are useful tools to support knowledge and learning, while also offering the opportunity to demonstrate the value of public health.” – Wendy Nicholson MBE Deputy Chief Nurse, Deputy Head of WHO CC and Programme Director for BSIL
“There has never been a more important time for our profession to consider our role in preventing illness, protecting health and promoting wellbeing. This will be essential as we start to build back better and fairer following the pandemic.” – Jamie Waterall, Deputy Chief Nurse and National Director for the All Our Health programme at Public Health England.
“The All Our Health resources will play an important role in supporting all health and care professionals to enhance their focus on critical public health issues. I would encourage all public health nurses to use these resources and share them across their networks and areas of practice.”
