New Inclusion Health session added to All Our Health programme29 March 2021
SAPHNA is delighted to work with Public Health England and Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare to support the All Our Health programme.view our dedicated page
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.
