Wider Determinants of Health – In Practice

28 April 2021   /  Online - Tickets from £145 +VAT

Now is the time to better understand the wider determinants of health and how public services can work together, both nationally and locally, to make a difference.

As the nation examines the reasons for why the most deprived communities have been amongst the hardest hit by the pandemic, the new ‘Integration and Innovation’ White Paper places an increased emphasis on prevention and tackling the underlying causes of health inequalities. Often referred to as the ‘wider determinants of health’, it is the decisions that Government and wider public services take every day, about every aspect of citizen life, that have a direct impact on Population Health.

In this one-day, CPD-certified Together for Health event you’ll gain a better understanding of the core social, cultural, political, economic, commercial and environmental factors that influence health. We’ll also go one step further to explore practical ways to break down barriers and to work across systems for citizen outcomes.

Learning Objectives

The potential to drive better health outcomes for local populations through influencing the wider determinants of health remains an untapped opportunity for many health systems today.

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

  • The context of good health, rather than just good healthcare
  • Evidence and connections between wealth and health
  • Working with citizens to establish healthy communities
  • The relationship between housing and health
  • Working across silos to create healthy places
