A series of products designed to support health and wellbeing boards have been launched at the NHS Confederation conference.
Learning sets, comprised of health and wellbeing board members and associates, have been developing the products in association with the Department of Health, NHS Confederation, Local Government Association and the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement. The products summarise each learning set’s key points of learning and will provide useful points of reference for shadow health and wellbeing boards as they move towards statutory form in April 2013.
The eight products include:
- A guide to governance for health and wellbeing boards
- Public and patient engagement: resources for health and wellbeing boards
- Health Impact Assessment: a useful tool for health and wellbeing boards
- Case studies relating to the health and wellbeing of children and young people
- Poster relating to the health and wellbeing of children and young people
- Making the best use of collective resources: An introduction for health and wellbeing boards
- Making the best use of collective resources: Examples in practice
- A review of policy documents on children and young people’s health and wellbeing
Additional products will be published over the coming months, ahead of the National Learning Network’s learning and sharing summit on 8 November.
