Carbon Literacy for Healthcare Professionals:
Do you want to understand how climate change is putting patients at risk? Do you want to learn about the NHS’ massive contribution to greenhouse gas emissions and how it has delivered a world leading response? Do you want to learn how you can contribute to a low carbon NHS, where we deliver high quality care whilst protecting the health of future generations? Did you complete Building a Net Zero NHS and think, I want to learn more and get involved?! If the answer was yes to any of these questions, gaining Carbon Literacy accreditation is the perfect next step for you!
The Carbon Literacy Project in collaboration with Greener NHS and e-Learning For Healthcare (ELFH) and half-day workshop package, which has two steps required to achieve Carbon Literacy Accreditation.
The Carbon Literacy for Healthcare eLearning contains five modules which broadly cover:
- Climate change science, impacts and policy on a global, national and organisational scale.
- The impacts of climate change on health, the contribution of healthcare to overall emissions and the NHS’ plan to reach net zero
- Climate equity and our most vulnerable communities.
- 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.
