CAPE Climate Toolkit for Health Professionals

I'm sharing this great toolkit which has been put together by CAPE (the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment) and published recently:

https://cape.ca/campaigns/climate-health-policy/climate-change-toolkit-for-health-professionals/ 

The toolkit consists of eight modules which have been prepared as stand-alone documents that can be read by themselves, but also complement one another.  Each is accompanied by a summary factsheet.

It's been designed as a tool for health professionals and students in the health care and public health sectors who want to engage more directly as educators with their patients, peers and communities on the issue of climate change , and/or as advocates for the policies, programs and practices needed to mitigate climate change and/or prepare for climate change in their workplaces and communities.

The focus is wider than sustainable healthcare, and is mainly on the Canadian context, but should also be a really useful educational resource for interested health professionals and students elsewhere including the UK.
