Event Overview: Attending the National Health and Wellbeing Conference

In this overview Polly James reflects on her learning after attending the National Health and Wellbeing Conference.

"On the 8th October 2019 I was grateful to be representing HEE working across the North West at ‘The National Workplace Health and Wellbeing Conference’ aimed at outlining the latest insights currently being used by public and private sector companies, to support employers in developing high quality health and wellbeing strategies."

Health Literacy Awareness Training

Health Education England in collaboration with the Community Health and Learning Foundation, developed bespoke health literacy awareness training materials aimed at health library and knowledge services (LKS) staff. Selected LKS staff in the North (and across England) went through an awareness and train the trainer programme to cascade this training to LKS colleagues across the region. In total, 66 people attended the full day’s awareness training and in total 111 people attended either full training or
shorter awareness workshops.

It will also cover network leadership and explore the role technology plays in supporting networks to work across boundaries and organisations.
