Mental health problems can affect anyone, regardless of age, race, gender or social background.
Following on from the hugely successful inaugural ”Getting Wales Moving: Delivering on the Wellbeing for Future Generations Act” conference, we are very pleased to announce the date for the second event in the series on the 27th of February 2019. This year’s conference will again feature influential and well-respected speakers with anticipated insights from the Welsh Government, Sport Wales, and leading figures involved in improving population health and tackling inactivity and skills shortages across workforce and communities.
Residing at the heart of their communities, pharmacies have been called upon to support more robust public health services. This timely symposium provides a range of public policy and health professionals including pharmacists, health and wellbeing boards and clinical commissioners with an invaluable forum to examine how pharmacies can deliver stronger and more efficient primary care support. Delegates will also explore the evolving role of pharmacies within their communities and co-develop strategies to embed them at the centre of local public healthcare.
The HiAP 2019 conference will serve to provide help for local authority and NHS decision makers, sharing insight on how best to collate evidence, identify impacts, take action and prioritise interventions. It will provide all delegates with a number of pre-conference toolkits and practical solutions which can help them deliver immediate steps towards rebalancing the many societal and health related challenges they may face. It will focus on the transference of best practice methodology in order to create common understandings of health and health inequalities across councils, NHS settings and community care.
