Foundation Programme in Health Improvement
This 2 day programme combines Level 1 Health Awareness with Level 2 Understanding Health Improvement. The course provides participants with a firm foundation in this area and is particularly beneficial to those who are new to the concepts of public health and health improvement.
Day 1 is a first step towards a basic awareness of health and lifestyle choices and how they affect personal and public health. The day focuses on personal health, leading on to explore the practical health issues of which we should all be aware.
Day 2 focuses on the importance of promoting health, and the factors that facilitate, or create barriers to health improvement. It includes the principles of behaviour change, handling confidential information and effective programme evaluation.
