Integrating Population Health into Nursing Curricula Seminar and Webinar - 30 August 2018

Cherylynn Wray - Wednesday, August 01, 2018 -

 

Integrating Population Health into Nursing Curricula: Harnessing the Opportunity of the New NMC Standards for Registered Nurses

 

The new NMC standards offer an opportunity to rethink nursing curricula to ensure that population health is integrated throughout the curriculum. Join us for a webinar exploring recent research, conducted by an Edinburgh Napier University team, including ERASMUS students and Fulbright Research Scholar, Prof. Kathie Lasater to hear how others from a range of perspectives (academic, civil service, regulatory, student) are thinking about the challenge of embedding population health in nursing education. Then, share your thoughts on how we can make sure our students are prepared to meet the needs and improve health outcomes of future populations.

 

Date: 30 August 2018

Time: 15:00-1630 (UK time)

Place: Sighthill Campus or online via Facebook Live

 

Places are available to participate in-person at Edinburgh Napier University or via Facebook.

NCMP Trends In Children’s Body Mass Index 2006/07-2016/17: Slide Set Presentation

Cherylynn Wray - Thursday, July 26, 2018 -

PHE Risk Factors Intelligence has produced a slide set presentation of trends in children’s body mass index 2006/07-2016/17 using National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) data. It shows that the proportion of children in Year 6 (aged 10-11 years) with severe obesity has reached the highest point since records began and that stark health inequalities continue to widen. It also shows an upward trend of excess weight, obesity and severe obesity in Year 6 children; a downward trend of excess weight, overweight, obesity and severe obesity in Reception age boys; and a downward trend of underweight in Reception age boys and girls, and Year 6 girls.

 

The PowerPoint slides present key data and information on the trends in child body mass index from the NCMP in clear, easy to understand charts and graphics. They show overall trends in obesity, overweight, excess weight, severe obesity and underweight prevalence over time. The slides can be downloaded and used freely with acknowledgement to Public Health England. The slides are also available to download from the PHE Obesity Intelligence KHub Public Library
