Following on from my blog last week. There was an important landmark document released this week – the AHP strategy for public health.
This is all 4 nations working together. Fifteen AHP professions. All taking a lead in improving public health. The strategy recognises that AHPs are already at the forefront of promoting public health and seeks to emphasise and expand this aspect of their work through initial training, research, evidence, and workplace influence.
Although a visionary document it gives an insight into the future influential role AHPs can have in being leaders in improving the health of the nation. There should be opportunities opening up for AHPs to get involved in driving policy forward. To me, that is an exciting opportunity for osteopaths that we need to be embracing and making the most of. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts.
