National Conversation on Health Inequalities – Public Health England – 25 June 2014

“The National Conversation on Health Inequalities is a Public Health England programme about reducing differences in health. The aim is for local authorities to start talking about health inequalities in their communities.

You can use and share the documents in this collection to discuss health inequalities. The toolkit and research findings show the thinking behind this programme and ways to start a conversation in your area. They will also help you to discuss these issues with those who are most affected by them.

We want to work together to create a clear, consistent language for describing the causes of health inequalities. By discussing what causes these issues, we can help our local partners work with communities to plan solutions for change.

Public Health England publishes independent evidence papers on e-cigarettes – 15 May 2014

Electronic Cigarettes: a report commissioned by Public Health England by Professor John Britton and Dr Ilze Bogdanovica (University of Nottingham) takes a broad look at the issues relating to e-cigarettes including their role in tobacco harm reduction, potential hazards, potential benefits and regulation.

E-cigarette uptake and marketing: a report commissioned by Public Health England by Professor Linda Bauld, Kathryn Angus and Dr Marisa de Andrade (University of Stirling) examines use of e-cigarettes by children and young people, the scale and nature of current marketing and its implications, in particular in relation to its potential appeal to young people.

Publication of the evidence papers coincides with a national symposium, ‘Electronic cigarettes and tobacco harm reduction’, being held by PHE in London today. The symposium brings together senior public health leaders to discuss the opportunities and risks presented by the rise of e-cigarettes, and to identify areas of consensus to inform future action.”

Acute trust toolkit for the early detection, management and control of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae – Public Health England – December 2013

Acute trust toolkit for the early detection, management and control of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae – Public Health England – December 2013

“Synopsis

This toolkit incorporates, in an updated form, the January 2011 ‘Advice on Carbapenemase Producers: Recognition, infection control and treatment’ issued jointly by Department of Health Advisory Committee on Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare Associated Infection (ARHAI) and the Health Protection Agency (HPA).

This toolkit provides practical advice for clinicians, and staff at the frontline in an acute care setting (a similar toolkit is being prepared for the non-acute care setting). It also provides some basic public health risk assessment tools and advice and information for the patient.

The advice in this toolkit is applicable to both the NHS and the Independent Sector, into which many high-risk patients are admitted from outside the UK2. If the infection, prevention and control (IP&C) advice in this toolkit does not ‘fit’ your situation, IP&C teams can obtain further advice and signposting, particularly in relation to local risk assessment, through their local PHE Centre.”

Knowledge strategy: Harnessing the power of information to improve the public’s health – Public Health England – October 2013

Extract from the Executive Summary

“This document describes the strategic approach that the public health system will take around information and knowledge in order to improve and protect public health and reduce inequalities. It is a response from the whole public health system, under the leadership of PHE, to the Department of Health information strategy, The Power of Information: Putting all of us in control of the health and care information we need.

This strategy describes how PHE will meet the knowledge and information requirements of public health practitioners across the public health system. For this
reason, the primary audience for the strategy is knowledge and intelligence professionals across all directorates of PHE. This strategy exists because of a desire to improve the quality of knowledge in the whole public health system. Therefore the other key recipients of this document are the public health practitioners in local authorities who use public health knowledge on a day-to-day basis. These users, as well as all other stakeholders, are welcomed to shape the implementation of this strategy.

Taking the lead from The Power of Information, this strategy does not propose specific system implementations or set down detailed mechanisms for delivery. It provides a framework to support changes across the public health system, putting the user of knowledge at the centre and promoting flexibility and innovation within an environment that promotes efficiency.

The strategy is focused around the eight priorities for public health knowledge identified by PHE. It addresses the entire information lifecycle from understanding the requirements of those who are using public health knowledge through to what technologies PHE will use to disseminate knowledge.”

SPend and Outcome Factsheets and Tool (SPOT) – Public Health England

SPend and Outcome Factsheets and Tool (SPOT) – Public Health England

“About SPOT

NHS England has commissioned Public Health England to develop a tool which helps commissioners to link health outcomes and expenditure. The development of this tool and a Spend and Outcome Factsheet for every PCT and CCG in England has been led by PHE Knowledge and intelligence team (Northern and Yorkshire)’s Health Economics work programme.

Programme budgeting is a well-established technique for assessing investment in programmes of care rather than services. All PCTs in England have submitted an annual programme budgeting return since 2003/4. The tool and factsheets use this Programme Budgeting data and overall indicators of health outcome by programme (where available) to present PCTs and CCGs with an analysis of the impact of their expenditure. This allows easy identification of those areas which require priority attention, where relative potential shifts in investment opportunities will optimise local health gains and increase quality.

Commissioners can use the tool and the factsheets to gain an overview of outcome and expenditure across all programmes.”
