England: RSPH refreshes public health toolkit for professionals

22 May 2020

The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) has published a toolkit to support healthcare professionals to record and measure their public health impact.

Everyday interactions: a refresh, provides an update of the resources developed in 2017 by the RSPH and Public Health England (PHE).

Recording and measuring public health impacts is based on a Making Every Contact Count framework.

Included are 11 impact pathways based on key public health priorities, including childhood obesity, mental wellbeing and smoking.

Linda Hindle, PHE’s lead allied health professional, said: ‘This toolkit was developed in response to requests from healthcare professionals who wanted to understand the impact of their routine healthy conversations on the public’s health… we now need to spread the word.’
