New eLearning modules - helping staff to take action on reducing health inequalities.

The Learning and Improvement team have developed two new eLearning modules in collaboration with experts and learner representatives from across Scotland.

They aim to increase awareness and encourage action to reduce health inequalities, as well as focusing on specific areas relevant to the needs of the target audience.

The modules are:

Health inequalities awareness – for staff working in public services out-with health and social care. This module explores what is meant by health inequalities, what causes them and what can be done to prevent them.


Tackling health inequalities in health and social care sector – for staff working in health and social care settings.  This module examines the actions that can be taken to reduce health inequalities.  It highlights and explores the findings from the Working for Health Equity: the role of health professionals report and information produced by NHS Health Scotland.
