We held our first CPD/CME accredited webinar: Mitigation in the Healthcare Sector

In January 2021 we held our first webinar with CPD accreditation from the Royal College of Physicians and CME accreditation from the Yale School of Medicine, co-hosting with the Yale School of Public Health Center on Climate Change and Health.

It explores in detail the sources of emissions within the health sector, presents the NHS as a case study, and provides practical advice and information on the role of the health professional in addressing the healthcare sector’s carbon footprint.

We had fantastic presentations and insights from:

Introduction and welcome: Dr. Renee N. Salas, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

The Lancet Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change: Dr. Alice McGushin, Programme Manager, the Lancet Countdown

Estimating Overall Emissions and Health Impacts of a National Health System: Dr. Matthew Eckleman, Northeastern University and Lancet Countdown author

Balancing Patient Safety and Pollution Prevention: Dr. Jodi Sherman, Yale University and Lancet Countdown author

Delivering a Net Zero NHS: Hiten Patel, Senior Strategy Advisor, Greener NHS Programme

Practical opportunities for healthcare professionals: Miss Jennifer Isherwood, National Medical Director’s Clinical Fellow

Followed by a great panel discussion: The role of the health professional in mitigation in the healthcare sector and Q&A.
