Population Health & PHM – Explained

24 February 2021   /  Online

This CPD certified event will help you identify and demystify the what, why and how of Population Health and Population Health Management (PHM) systems and set you up to optimise your contribution to projects and interventions designed to improve health across identified local populations.

This programme is designed to provide an introduction to Population Health and PHM. In this 5-hour introductory session attendees will gain a deeper understanding of:

  • The definition and differences between Population Health and Population Health Management
  • The importance of changing approach in today’s healthcare environment
  • The key steps to PHM and the role of data and insights
  • The role of leaders and practitioners across all public services
  • Working across organisational boundaries and getting the most out of multi-disciplinary teams

Population Health is as an approach to improving wellness which goes beyond the planning of health services – it also takes into account the underlying social, economic and environmental determinants of health.

Population Health Management (PHM) takes this one step further and is a set of disciplines for how we determine the health needs of a population and the process by which local systems deliver an intervention and change. As health becomes a priority across every aspect of citizen life in response to the pandemic, these terms will only become more frequently used as part of a drive to think about good health in a new way.
