Overview

Promoting health is a responsibility of everyone who works in health and social care. It is also an important government agenda. So, how do we as individuals promote the health of our service users and the government promote health within the wider population?

In this course, learners will look at how the government, through organisations such as Public Health England, tries to improve the health of the population, including the policies and activities the government undertakes to improve the health of the nation. Learners will also look at their role in monitoring the population’s health, including the factors can affect health and the government’s role in trying to reduce these factors.

From an individual service user’s view, learners will examine the role of health promotion and some common approaches and models used by practitioners to promote and protect the health of the communities they serve. Learners will explore how to run a small health campaign and how to overcome barriers to participation.

It is important that everyone working in health and social care sectors supports service users to maintain as healthy a lifestyle as possible to minimise the development of future health conditions, including service users with long-term conditions.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
