Everyday Interactions focuses on the public health impact of four of the key healthcare professions within the wider workforce: nurses and midwives, dentists, allied health professionals and pharmacists (although it is hoped that it will have wider appeal) and aims to support these healthcare professionals as they record and measure their public health impact.


Public health impact pathways

The impact pathways produced in Everyday Interactions will support healthcare professionals to record what they ‘do’ in their interactions with individuals, what data can be collated and also the possible impacts from these interactions.

Demonstrating impact on these public health priorities is important to improving the public’s health, reducing health inequalities, and ultimately, preventing premature deaths from causes that public health interventions can, and should, prevent.

There are 11 topics covered by the impact pathways, but for anyone wishing to develop an impact pathway on a new topic or to create a pathway that covers multiple morbidities, a generic pathway is available for adaptation here.
