The Wessex Public Health annual conference on March 25th 2020 will focus on collaborative action to improve population health and reduce health inequalities. As usual we will have invited speakers, workshops, and oral and poster presentations around the three main themes and other local public health action.
This year the conference's themes are:
NHS Action on Prevention
What innovations in primary, secondary and integrated care are improving health? How is the NHS delivering on its commitments for action on prevention? What collaborations are being built between NHS staff and public health practitioners and researchers?
Working Together to Prevent Harm to Vulnerable People
How is a public health approach to policing, and health and social care, being used to prevent harm and reduce crime and disorder? How are partnerships with the police and other ‘blue light’ services acting on drugs and alcohol misuse, mental health and domestic violence?
Tackling Social, Economic and Commercial Determinants of Health
What are we doing to redress inequalities in income, education, and employment that impact on health and disability? What more can we do collaboratively across public and private sectors to act on the social, structural and gender inequalities that impact on quality of life, mental and physical health?
Local Public Health Action in Wessex
An opportunity to showcase other local public health activity that is making a difference and having an impact on health.
