Picture this – information and learning that is:
Sounds like a lot to ask, but, this is exactly what Public Health England’s All Our Health framework provides to the 2 million health and care professionals working across the system.
For those professionals who know about the framework and the associated learning opportunities know how useful, engaging and relevant it is and we often hear them say “why didn’t I know about this before?”
For those of you reading this blog post and discovering All Our Health for the first time there are three ways to access the framework (and for those of you who know all about All Our Health, here is a reminder so you can tell everyone you know about it):

Via the e-learning: The Interactive All Our Health e-learning sessions, are written by PHE and developed by Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare team. The sessions aim to increase the knowledge, confidence and skills of all health and care professionals in embedding prevention, protection and promotion into their day to day practice. The learning is open access, free to use and you have the option to create an account to record your learning for your professional development.
