Healthcare is changing. The emphasis is shifting from simply treating illness, to promoting good health and encouraging individual responsibility for wellbeing – whether it be quitting smoking, doing more exercise, losing weight, drinking alcohol wisely or eating more healthily.
The Level 2 RSPH Award in Understanding Health Improvement is a nationally recognised award accredited by The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) and supported by the Department of Health. It helps employers and organisations of all types and sizes support a healthy workforce and assists front-line staff perform better in a ‘health promotion’ role. The RSPH developed the unique Understanding Health Improvement qualification as a direct response to the Government’s Choosing Health: Making Healthy Choices Easier initiative with a particular focus on tackling health inequalities. This course is also a requirement for all Healthy Living Pharmacies who must have at least one full time equivalent (FTE) 'Health Champion' who has successfully completed this course.
This training is available as both a face-to-face workshop and an online course.
