Rachel Gowland, 10 March 2022

Paramedics encounter daily the challenges of Public Health.  Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) worked in partnership with the College of Paramedics to develop a Public Health module in the Paramedics elearning programme. Written by paramedics with a keen interest and expertise in Public Health issues, the module provides an introduction to the principles and practice of Public Health, and aims to equip paramedics to contribute more effectively to the Public Health agenda.

Sessions in the Public Health module include:

  • Introduction to Public Health
  • Health Protection
  • Health Promotion
  • Wider Determinants of Health
  • Healthcare Public Health
  • Social Prescribing
  • Health Protection – Toxidrome and Infectious Disease

This interactive CPD module will be useful for experienced paramedics, newly qualified paramedics, students and assistant practitioners. Sessions can be accessed on a variety of mobile devices and take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

To register for this elearning module, or for more information, please visit the Paramedics programme page.
