  2. The impacts of climate change on health, the contribution of healthcare to overall emissions and the NHS’ plan to reach net zero
  3. Climate equity and our most vulnerable communities.
  4. Strategies for influencing others to take action on climate change.

Each module concludes with an assessment to test your knowledge.  You can always pick up where you left off as your progress will automatically be saved on your account.
