#AllOurHealth are running a FAB new student week from the 20th-25th Jan
#AllOurHealth focuss on preventing illness, protecting health, and promoting wellbeing and how it applies to all of our roles. Our collective efforts of increasing our focus on these evidence based interventions really do make a huge difference in prevention illness, reducing premature death and reducing unacceptable health inequalities.
Public Health England’s (PHE) All Our Health framework is a call to action to all health and care professionals to embed prevention within their day to day practice. The All Our Health educational materials, tools and resources that have been developed to help health and care professionals make huge impacts in preventing illness, protecting health and promoting wellbeing. The free and open access WeLearn #AllOurHealth Virtual Student event is a WeCommunities and PHE collaboration that uses social media to engage students about the All Our Health Framework and how it is relevant to their role

CAHPR has recently published a framework of research practitioner competencies to support practitioners, managers, educators and leaders to review and plan practitioner roles, activity and support systems within a range of practice settings.
The framework describes the knowledge and skills required of allied health professionals (AHPs) working in research from basic competency to advanced and research leadership levels.
The generation and application of research should be embedded in health and social care practice in order to improve services, promote health, wellbeing and safety of service users, and to optimise the effective use of resources. This new resource offers a practical framework to support making research ‘core business’ to practice whilst also forging pathways and career progression for AHPs to become leaders in the field of applied health research.
The framework is available on the CAHPR website at: https://bit.ly/2sp2X4Z.
