All Our Health launches interactive townscape on childhood obesity24 March 2021
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.
