New County Lines Exploitation session added to All Our Health programme

Posted on: June 30th, 2021 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

A new elearning session to help health and care professionals protect vulnerable children from exploitation has been developed by Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and Public Health England.

The UK Government defines County Lines as a term used to describe gangs and organised criminal networks involved in exporting illegal drugs into one or more importing areas within the UK, using dedicated mobile phone lines or other form of ‘deal line’.

Such gangs are likely to exploit children and vulnerable adults to move and store the drugs and money and they will often use coercion, intimidation, violence (including sexual violence) and weapons.

This new bite-sized resource, part of the All Our Health programme, helps health and care professionals to improve their knowledge of County Lines activity and offers advice on how they can support families and young people at risk of exploitation.
On completion of the session, learners will:

  • understand how county lines work
  • know the extent and consequences of county lines exploitation
  • recognise associated risk and protective factors for county lines exploitation
  • recognise indicators of county lines exploitation and the actions for professional practice

The session also signposts learners to other useful sources of advice and information such as the Department for Education and the Home Office.For more information and to access the free County Lines Exploitation session, visit the All Our Health programme page.

New Inclusion Health session added to All Our Health programme

Posted on: March 25th, 2021 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked in partnership with Public Health England to develop a new session on inclusion health as part of the All Our Health e-learning programme.

Inclusion health is a catch-all term used to describe people who are socially excluded, such as vulnerable migrants, sex workers and people who experience homelessness. These individuals typically experience overlapping risk factors for poor health including poverty, violence and discrimination, which frequently lead to barriers in accessing healthcare, resulting in extremely poor health outcomes.

Inclusion Health is a free bite-sized session designed to help health and care professionals, team leaders, managers and strategic leaders improve access to services for people who are socially excluded.

On completion of the session, learners will:

  • understand how the concepts of inclusion health and social exclusion can be useful for their professional practice
  • know about the health issues that socially excluded people who are living in their area are more likely to encounter
  • understand specific activities and interventions that all health and care professionals can do to support the health and wellbeing of inclusion health groups
  • consider the resources and services available in their area that can help people from inclusion health groups

The session also signposts learners to other useful sources of advice and information and there is an additional All Our Health e-learning session on homelessness within the programme.

All Our Health launches interactive townscape on childhood obesity

Posted on: March 18th, 2021 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked in partnership with Public Health England (PHE) to develop an interactive townscape on childhood obesity as part of the All Our Health e-learning programme.

The townscape provides advice and guidance for health and care professionals to help support families and children living above a healthy weight. The COVID-19 pandemic has posed challenges for families, including the closure of schools, leisure centres and sports clubs, which has contributed towards a decrease in physical activity for some children.

The interactive townscape takes a place-based approach to consider what action can be taken on this public health issue and features an animated town where learners can select various buildings, such as the school and sports centre, to access advice and guidance for preventing illness, protecting health and promoting wellbeing.

The townscape also signposts learners to other sources of support such as PHE and obesity charities.

It complements All Our Health’s 25 bite-sized e-learning sessions which cover a range of public health topics including mental health, early adolescence, immunisation and physical activity.

To access the townscape please visit the All Our Health programme page.
