Reducing Inequalities: Getting Results Training Programme

Twenty five participants have recently completed the Reducing Inequalities: Getting Results Training Programme.  Developed by Belfast Healthy Cities with support and facilitation from Erica Ison, the training was delivered to elected representatives, health professionals, policy makers and planners from community, voluntary and statutory sectors.

The training aimed to build capacity to reduce inequalities affecting health and wellbeing; and to develop a professional network to enhance collaborative working through the following objectives.

  • To strengthen understanding of inequalities affecting health and wellbeing
  • To create a greater awareness of the capacity organisations have to reduce inequalities affecting health and wellbeing  
  • To promote an increased understanding of the use and benefits of data, tools and approaches to reduce inequalities in both policy and practice
  • To enhance existing expertise to develop policy and to deliver services that target inequalities across Northern Ireland

Participants were encouraged to reflect on their learning during the course of the programme and engage in elements of directed self-learning across the 4 modules:

Module 1: Inequalities in Context: Setting the Scene
Module 2: Collation and Interpretation of the Information on Inequalities
Module 3: Integrating the Focus on Inequalities into Policy Development
Module 4: Developing Appraisal Skills and Applying the Learning
