With a focus on public health and ‘population approaches’ our conference will emphasise how outdoor recreation promotes and protects health and wellbeing in terms of preventing ill health, as well as prolonging and enhancing quality of life.
Advancing services within health and social care, as well as other sectors, including that of outdoor recreation are expected to be based on principles of service efficacy and cost effectiveness. With these principles shaping contemporary health and social care service sectors, ‘population health’ approaches are increasingly common. Such approaches focus on the social determinants of health and hold real opportunities for cross sector co-production on improving health outcomes.
The event will:
Focus on how health inequalities can be addressed and how services can better develop their scope and staff skills to address some of the population health needs.
Look at key public health areas including mental health, obesity and sedentary behavior.
Examine good practice in key Public health areas, focusing on what outdoor recreation can offer though ‘prescribing it’
Address the evidence gap and consider how outdoor recreation as a health intervention can move from good practice and successful pilots into the mainstream.
Who is the event for? Practitioners and policy makers in public health and outdoor recreation
