New session on Healthy Ageing added to All Our Health programme

Posted on: March 16th, 2022 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID) to develop a new elearning session for the All Our Health programme.

Healthy Ageing is aimed at frontline health and care professionals to help them use their trusted relationships with patients, families and communities to promote the benefits of healthy ageing.

This session has been developed in response to the UK’s steadily ageing population.  People are living longer but they are not always living in good health. The average healthy life expectancy differs considerably from region to region with too many people, particularly in the most deprived areas of England, spending a large proportion of their later life in poor health or managing multiple long-term conditions which could be prevented, or the impact lessened, through action on behavioural risk factors, community interventions, such as building social connections, and wider determinants including employment, housing and transport.

To help address this widening gap in life expectancy, the Healthy Ageing session provides advice and information to help all health and care professionals:

  • understand specific activities and interventions that can support healthy ageing and provide holistic care
  • think about the resources and services available in your area that can help people to be happy, healthy and active into later life

The session also signposts learners to other sources of useful information within the NHS, the Royal College of Psychiatrists and The British Geriatrics Society. It complements the 26 existing sessions within the All Our Health programme which covers a range of public health topics including dementia, falls and fractures and physical activity. All Our Health also features 5 interactive townscape sessions where learners can click on various buildings, such as the GP surgery and school, to access support on topics such as breastfeeding and childhood obesity.

All Our Health launches new interactive townscape on child oral health

Posted on: November 10th, 2021 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked in partnership with the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (formerly Public Health England) to develop an interactive townscape on child oral health within the All Our Health elearning programme.

The townscape provides evidence and guidance to help health and social care professionals to improve child oral health and reduce oral health inequalities in England.  Tooth decay is the most common oral disease affecting children and young people in England, yet it is largely preventable. Just under a quarter of all children in England have experience of tooth decay by the age of age of 5 and tooth extraction is the most common reason for 6 to 10 year olds being admitted to hospital. These children are likely to go on to have a lifetime of poor oral health with associated health and financial costs.

Poor oral health impacts on children and families, tooth decay can lead to pain, affect sleep and the ability to eat, affecting school readiness and absence. In addition, parents or carers may need to take time off work to take their child for treatment.

The townscape takes a place-based approach and features an animated town where health and social care professionals can click on various buildings, such as the town hall, dental surgery and school, to access information and evidence-based resources to inform action to address the poor oral health of the children they come into contact with.

The townscape also signposts the learner to other sources of support such as the NHS website, NHS Start for Life, HENRY’s videos and Change 4 Life top tips for teeth.

It complements the 4 existing townscapes on breastfeeding, smoking in pregnancy, childhood obesity and conception and preconception care.

In addition to the townscapes, there are 26 bite sized elearning sessions which cover a range of public health topics including early adolescence, immunisation and physical activity.

For more information and to access the townscape, please visit the All Our Health programme page.

New survey launches to expand reach and impact for All Our Health

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

A new survey to gather feedback on how colleagues can best implement the All Our Health elearning programme into their settings and places has been developed by Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) and Public Health England.

As the UK moves towards the recovery phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be essential for health, care and extended public health workforces to appraise the lessons learned and consider what changes need to be made to ensure that each sector builds back better and fairer. This will require a sharper focus on protecting and promoting the public’s health and addressing health inequalities.

The survey will encourage professionals to think about what additional tools and resources could support them to embed the All Our Health programme within their settings. The ideas generated will form 2 new implementation toolkits which will be targeted towards provider and academic organisations.

To access the survey and share your thoughts, please visit: https://healtheducationyh.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/all-our-health-toolkit-survey

All Our Health features a broad range of bite-sized elearning sessions and interactive townscapes covering key public health topics such as obesity, dementia, air pollution and physical activity. They are designed to help professionals improve their knowledge and confidence to act on these important issues.

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 elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked in partnership with Public Health England to develop a new session on inclusion health as part of the All Our Health elearning 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 elearning session on homelessness within the programme.
For more information and to access the free Inclusion Health session, visit the All Our Health programme page.

All Our Health launches interactive townscape on childhood obesity

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

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked in partnership with Public Health England (PHE) to develop an interactive townscape on childhood obesity as part of the All Our Health elearning 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 elearning 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.
