Public Health Conference: Social prescribing, social movements, shaping attitudes and behaviours
The challenges facing the NHS require a major shift in the way we approach both individual care and public health in general. Problems caused by unhealthy lifestyle choices are putting pressure on a system that is already struggling to cope with an ageing population and tight budgets.
Social prescribing has a vital role to play in tackling a wide range of public health problems from loneliness to obesity. By acting quickly and referring patients to voluntary schemes, including arts activities and sports clubs, primary care professionals can prevent health problems from developing into complex long-term conditions.
Join us for the Public Health Conference where expert speakers will explain how we can engage more with local communities and create a social movement around public health. Discuss how the healthcare system can shift towards a more prevention based model, explore how devolution will impact on public health in Greater Manchester and discover new methods to encourage behavioural change and reinforce healthy lifestyle choices.
