At the Heart of it All: Personalised Care and Population Health is the second national public health conference for nurses, midwives, health visitors and AHPs. This free to attend conference is hosted by Public Health England and Department of Health and builds on the success of last year's event which brought together over 300 participants from a variety of settings and set the direction for our work programme 'Personalised Care and Population Health'.

The conference will be an important event for learning and looking forward. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the 'Population Health Framework' for all practitioners and national drivers such as 'Living Well for Longer'. There will be opportunities to consider how to ensure practice includes 'Making Every Contact Count' and addresses health inequalities. And importantly delegates will contribute to the design of the next stages of this cutting edge work and advise on communication and implementation.

The wide range of topic areas for the masterclasses will enable participants get the most from their time at the conference. Sessions will align with the six activity areas of the Framework (wider determinants of health; health improvement; health protection; healthcare public health; supporting health and wellbeing; life course) starting to put the Framework 'at the heart of practice'. Our 'Introducing innovators' session will provide the opportunity to learn from carers, award winners, caremakers and about new technologies.

Our day will start with the Health Minister and Public Health England's Chief Executive Duncan Selbie setting the scene and continue with a number of excellent speakers including Chief Nursing Officer Jane Cummings and the Chief Health Professions Officer. It will close with Helen Bevan, Director of NHSIQ helping us to 'make it happen!'.

Information about the topics to be covered in each session is available on the programme page and full details of speakers and presentation titles will be available in June.

During the preceding week, 23 to 27 June we will be holding our third' Week of Action' which will focus on health improvement, and health promoting practice. This is an opportunity to showcase innovative practice in a variety of platforms such as twitter chats, articles in the nursing and midwifery, AHP professional press, blogs and webinars.
