Royal Institute of Public Health to launch new ‘healthier lifestyle’ qualification

The Royal Institute of Public Health (RIPH) is launching a qualification specifically targeting workers with an interest in helping people adopt healthier lifestyles.

The ‘Understanding Health Improvement’ qualification was developed following strong public response to the government’s White Paper on health last year.

Dr Alan Maryon-Davis, RIPH chairman, said: “This new qualification is a significant opportunity for anyone interested in promoting good health to get started on the skills ladder of helping people adopt healthier ways of living.”

People who work in pharmacies, care homes, leisure centres, supermarkets and schools all have a role to play, he added.
