Title:
Public health careers: mapping information, informing practitioner needs
Authors:
Dodd, Vanessa ( 0000-0002-8404-892X ) ; Binding, Charlene; Neary, Siobhan
Abstract:
Public health promotion and ill health prevention is a key priority for the NHS. The public health workforce is central to achieving improved health outcomes for a diverse and changing population. This mixed-methods study explored career practitioners’ views on their knowledge of the public health sector as well as the accessibility of public health career information on selected websites. The research suggested practitioners lacked awareness of public health opportunities and were only somewhat confident in providing public health career information. In response to this a new web site has been developed which provides information on over 350 health care roles
