Population Health Digital Toolkit now available

Posted on: November 2nd, 2021 by Rachel Gowland No Comments

The Long Term Conditions and Prevention programme team in Health Education England worked with Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh), to develop a digital toolkit based on the population health curriculum. The toolkit will be useful to anyone working in the wider health and care system in England, who wants to learn about population health.

What is population health?

Population health is an approach aimed at improving the health of an entire population and reducing health inequalities by working together, across communities and partner agencies.

Why should we learn about population health?

It is essential for every healthcare organisation because population health principles have the potential to contribute significantly to improved health outcomes across the health and care system.

COVID-19 has had a disproportionate impact on many already experiencing disadvantage and health inequalities. The pandemic has highlighted the need for the NHS to increase the scale and pace of action to tackle health inequalities and protect those at greater risk.

Taking a population health approach can help in the recovery from the pandemic and to improve patient access, experiences and the outcomes of those populations in most need.

Who needs to learn about population health?

The toolkit aims to improve the knowledge of the health and care workforces.

How can we learn about population health?

This Population Health Digital Toolkit supports learners by providing links to free resources mapped to 11 core curriculum areas and learning objectives.

Learners may benefit from exploring the learning objectives to identify any gaps in their knowledge and visiting the relevant resources. Each learning objective is supported by an introductory section and reflective questions to help learners link population health to their professional practice.

Accessing the Population Health Digital Toolkit

The toolkit can be accessed by anyone who is registered with elfh.  You can register for an account with any email address on the elfh hub.
