The aim of the programme is to support a range of health and care professions, to develop their own population health skills through designing, implementing, testing and evaluating a small-scale health improvement project within their sphere of practice.

Participants will be supported remotely via an Action Learning Set of peers across your region, to utilise the OHID/HEE developed toolkit for Embedding Public Health into Clinical Services to identify ideas and test public health interventions in their own field of practice.

Many doctors and health care professionals have patients who are refugees or asylum seekers. A significant proportion of those patients will have experienced traumatic events, including torture, and have complex health needs as a result.  At Freedom from Torture they have 40 years’ experience of working with survivors of torture, supporting them to rebuild their lives.

Designed by experts from our Clinical Services team, this 10-module course is designed for all doctors and healthcare professionals providing care for refugees and asylum seekers who may have experienced torture.
