Promoting Mens Health Workshop

The Outreach Librarians work in partnership with the North Staffs Health Information Forum. The Forum is holding a workshop on Promoting Mens Health on Thursday 15 May 2008, between 1.30 – 4.30pm, at Bentilee Neighbourhood Centre.

This free half day workshop is for any NHS staff across North Staffs, who are interested in promoting health information or health services to men in more effective ways.

The workshop will look at key facts about male health and illness and men’s attitudes towards health services. It will also help participants to draw on best practice and skills-based tools that can help improve local provision and support gender sensitive services.

The facilitator is Robbie Porter, the national training officer for the Men’s Health Forum http://www.menshealthforum.org.uk/.

There is no cost for the event and a free healthy buffet lunch will be available from 1:30pm, but places are limited. Please register for the event by sending an e-mail to Pam Dunning, e-mail: p.dunning@staffs.ac.uk, or by using the form on the flyer. This also includes more details on the programme and the aims of the event.
