PIHC Synergy - Environmental Sustainability in Health and Social Care
  • Online delivery

Save event

Learning with, from, and about students in other professions and subjects.

Between 14:00 and 16:00 on Thursday 28 April, students in all the subjects taught across the Faculty of Health will learn alongside, from, and about each other during a webinar on environmental sustainability in health and social care.

The session will begin with a talk from Linda Hindle from Greener Allied Health Professions. Greener AHP is part of the Greener NHS programme. It provides information on the importance of environmental sustainability for population health and the environment's health. Greener NHS works with staff, hospitals, and partners and builds on the great work being done by trusts across the country, sharing ideas on reducing the impact on public health and the environment, saving money, and reaching net carbon zero.

The session will then see a round table discussion with a range of professionals, academics, and students. All have a passion for environmental sustainability. Together they will consider how collectively and individually their subject or profession can contribute.

Our panel has experience in topics such as reducing the environmental impact of equipment, medicines, and resources, public health and prevention, food and nutrition, digital transformation, and in the application of technology. Each will explain the contribution of their subject and reflect on how interprofessional working might contribute even more.

The value of this session to students graduating into health or social care professions is clear. But it will be just as valuable to those who have no such career plans. The objective of this session may be to improve health and social care, but the principles of learning with, from, and about others apply to all of us, helping to build the green leaders of the future.

Why is this session in almost every first year's timetable? The Faculty of Health is committed to making interprofessional learning a substantial part of every student's experience. That's because we believe interprofessional education is crucial to those going on to work in health and social care and enriching even for those who aren't. We have the ambition to become a national leader in this field.

This is the last of three PIHC Synergy sessions. You can watch the recording of the first two sessions on dementia and oral cancer.

The link to participate in the 28 April Synergy session will be shared with you via email closer to the event. Please visit the further information link above to view the timetabled courses for this webinar. We look forward to seeing you.
