by improving education and training
of public health professionals
for both practice and research
The Young Researchers Forum (YRF) is an exciting pre-conference event which will be taking place on Wednesday 20th November 2019 before the main Digital Public Health (DPH) and European Public Health (EPH) 2019 conferences open, in Marseille, France.
ASPHER, in collaboration with other colleagues, is carrying out a brief survey of the Schools of Public Health and other bodies involved with education and training in public health ethics in Europe to better understand current activities, views and perspectives on the issue. This understanding will assist in considering options for further development of education and training in public health ethics.
The InfAct - Joint Action on Health Information project is collecting information based on the opinion of Public Health experts aimed at characterizing existing capacities and training needs for the use and management of health information by public health professionals in EU Member States and associated countries.
Public Health Training Academy (PHTA)
ASPHER Public Health Training Academy
Towards the Europe-wide CPD scheme in Public Health
The current Public Health Continuing Professional Development (CPD) offer in Europe is scattered and difficult to navigate. This makes it complicated for professionals within the Public Health Workforce to access the training that they need in order to further professionalise and advance in their career.
ASPHER invited its members to join the Public Health Training Academy project, an umbrella structure bringing together high-quality training in Public Health with the view to developing the Europe-wide CPD scheme in Public Health.
The first step of this ongoing project is to create a repository with the courses that will be offered under the PHTA umbrella. As the number of PHTA courses grows and the demand for training has been further identified, the PHTA will also serve as a platform for schools to collaborate in the preparation of new CPD courses.
