Champs Public Health Collaborative are recruiting health care leaders from clinical settings across Cheshire and Merseyside into a support programme where they can develop population health skills through designing, implementing, testing and evaluating a small-scale health improvement project within their sphere of practice.
Participants will be supported remotely to utilise the Health Education England (HEE) and Office of Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID) toolkit for ‘Embedding Public Health into Clinical Services’ to identify ideas and test public health interventions in their own field of practice.
The opportunity is open to nurses, midwives, health visitors, specialist nurses, medical professions, allied health professionals, dental professions, pharmacy staff, physician associates across all provider settings and care home managers.
