Slides from NET2012 conference
An interdisciplinary panel of Sustainable Healthcare Education members led a plenary session to open the NET Networking in Healthcare Education annual conference in Cambridge in September 2012. Slides from two of the speakers can now be downloaded here:
Diarmid CAMPBELL-LENDRUM (WHO) leads the climate change and health team within Public Health and Environment at WHO. He presented an update on the health effects of climate change internationally and the growing role of health professionals in adaptation and mitigation strategies.
Annabel Bennett (NHS Sustainable Development Unit) gave an overview of the NHS SDU's world-leading work helping the NHS to fulfil its potential as an exemplary, sustainable and low carbon organisation.
Other panel members were Stefi Barna (Public Health Lecturer, Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia), Ben Whittaker (Occupational Therapy Sustainable Practice Network, Centre for Sustainable Healthcare) and Benny Goodman (Lecturer in Adult Nursing, Plymouth University).
The plenary was well received and the topic will become a regular feature of NET meetings. Any health educators who would like to be present on their teaching are invited to apply for a joint interdisciplinary symposium for NET 2013. More information is available in the call for abstracts. Please contact Benny Goodman or Ben Whittaker if you would like to be involved.
