A series of new e-learning tools to boost health professionals’ knowledge and skills in dealing with some of the big issues in public health has been rolled out by Public Health England.
The interactive tools offer bite-sized information on key topics to help professionals prevent illness, protect health and promote wellbeing. You will have to register with the e-LfH hub before you can access the learning materials.
E-learning tools are available for cardiovascular disease prevention, adult obesity, antimicrobial resistance, physical activity, social prescribing, giving children the best start in life and supporting those at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness.
The tools explain why each topic is a public health priority, with practical advice on how different skills, techniques and approaches can help you to address the issues in your practice.
There will be 15 more e-learning tools published over the coming year for topics ranging from smoking cessation to health at work.
This interactive video will test and reinforce your knowledge so you can confidently advise parents on common childhood illnesses, such as teething, earache, coughs and colds.
