looking forward. Participants will have the opportunity to learn
about the 'Population Health Framework' for all practitioners and

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!'.
