Digital public health

Digital innovation is changing the way people live, work and learn. Digital public health is the combination of established public health knowledge with new digital approaches and tools.

We have developed a range of training and education content to support all health and care staff to:

  • identify people at risk of poor health
  • support early diagnosis
  • protect health
  • encourage healthy behaviours

Early in 2019, we launched the Population Wellbeing Portal. The Portal provides a central location for free e-learning and other training and education resources in population health, wellbeing and prevention.  These resources include e-learning, toolkits, videos, webinars and various publications. Whatever your involvement with the public, these will support you in expanding your knowledge and skills to enable you to influence the health of the population. The Portal brings together material from multiple sources. This includes resources from HEE, Public Health England (PHE), the Academy for Public Health for London and the South East, the Faculty of Public Health as well as many others.  It links with All Our Health, PHE’framework of evidence to guide healthcare professionals in preventing illness, protecting health and promoting wellbeing.

The portal offers a plethora of resources on subjects such as:

  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Nutrition and Obesity
  • Infection Management
  • Wellbeing and Mental Health
  • Prevention and Health Improvement
  • Relevant national policies and guidance
