In 2017, RSPH and PHE launched Everyday Interactions, a resource to support healthcare professions to record and measure their public health impact.

During 2019/20 we evaluated the use of Everyday Interactions and have now updated the impact pathways. 

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. Background information on how to use the impact pathways is available in the original 2017 report, which can be access here.

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.
