pLAYING IT SAFE

Welcome to the May edition of Public Health Network Cymru’s e-bulletin. The spotlight this month is ‘Child Safety Week‘. Child Safety Week is run by Child Accident Prevention Trust to raise awareness of the risks of child accidents and how they can be prevented. They provide a range of resources to help practitioners run local activities and events and promot safety messages in a fun and engaging way. Child Safety Week 2018 will take place between 4th-10th June 2018. Please get in touch with any information you would like to include on the website or e-bulletin by contacting us at publichealth.network@wales. nhs.uk

Spotlight on cHILD sAFETY wEEK Resources Released for Child Safety Week 2018 This year’s theme is Together We’ve Got this! What is the purpose of the theme? It’s easy for parents to feel overwhelmed by the demands that come with family life and keeping children safe can feel very challenging. For practitioners the reality is that there are fewer staff and less resource than ever, so child safety can seem a challenge to effectively address. Child Safety Week is designed to help simplify the issues and highlight the quick win’s and most effective ways to have an impact. The message from the theme is that by making the most of Child Safety Week and the resources CAPT produces and by working in partnership with other local agencies, everyone can get child safety right. Much of the excellent work that goes on with families is about supporting them to grow in confidence and become effective parents. Feeling empowered to keep your child safe is an important and practical step towards this. So use the theme to profile your work with families and show them that with your advice and support they can get child safety right. You can access the Materials here on the Child Accident Prevention Trust Website.

The role of vaccines in reducing health inequalities Vaccination is a highly cost effective health intervention, but not all children benefit from it. It seems that the most vulnerable children in our societies are the least likely to be fully vaccinated. The new EuroHealthNet fact sheet on Childhood, health inequalities, and vaccine-preventable diseases explores the links between social and economic inequalities and childhood vaccination, and what can and is being done to improve vaccination rates in low socio-economic groups. One in ten children in the European region remains vulnerable to potentially life-threatening diseases as they have not received a basic set of vaccinations usually delivered in infancy. Although Europe is a world leader controlling vaccine preventable diseases, hesitancy is on the rise and there have been several outbreaks of vaccine preventable diseases in Europe in 2016-2017. We cannot be complacent. Wealth distribution, maternal education, place of residence, the gender of the child, and poverty are linked to levels of vaccination coverage. Inequalities in access to childhood immunisation persist. Studies of the health status of families in precarious situations, migrant and refugee children, and Roma children have suggested that a significant number of infants are missing out on the vaccinations they need. Transparent and evidence-based information needs to be delivered in targeted and tailored ways, according to the specific needs of the audience. For example, in Sweden, communication materials are produced in minority languages, whilst in Greece separate campaigns target different socio-economic groups and groups of professionals. It is important to invest in health service staff who can deliver vaccinations and information to families. They are a trusted information source for families, and with training and knowledge of how to support those who need it most, can be a powerful resource. Successful programmes also include strong health promotion and education components. Investment is needed to increase health literacy amongst disadvantaged families. Removing financial, legal, and information barriers to accessing vaccinations for the most vulnerable families would also be a clear step forward. More information about health inequalities and vaccine preventable diseases can be found in the new EuroHealthNet factsheet, and the summary of EuroHealthNet’s responses to public EC consultations on vaccine preventable diseases.

Welsh Government Survey

The Welsh Government is currently exploring the experiences of service users and staff navigating the system for people with complex needs. For those who have mental health, substance misuse and/or housing difficulties, there is often a need to access services that span health, local authority and the third sector. Coordination of care can be challenging, and having to repeat your story for multiple assessments can be frustrating. We want to understand what barriers and opportunities currently exist, and to continue investing in solutions that result in smoother transitions, better understanding of how different services are accessed, how information is shared, and that promote recovery based on the holistic attainment of individual goals. Your feedback will be used alongside information from workshops to discuss ways of improving the coordination of services, to consider training opportunities, and to ensure those who need it can access timely, appropriate support to meet their needs. Please access this 5 minute staff survey by clicking on the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/TC75VPT The survey will be available until Friday, 15 June, 2018. Please disseminate to all staff widely within your networks, across health, local authority, third sector, housing and substance misuse teams (particularly frontline staff). Information is anonymous unless you provide your details in the survey responses.


Mortality in Wales 2002 to 2016 report published The Public Health Wales Observatory has published its latest report, which examines the faltering decline in mortality rates in Wales from 2002 to 2016. Mortality in Wales 2002 -2016 Overall the mortality rate in Wales – which describes the number of deaths per 100,000 people in Wales and takes account of changes in the population size and age structure – has been declining since the Second World War. However, since around 2011, this decline has faltered and rates have shown little change. A plateau in life expectancy in Wales is also in evidence since around 2011. This phenomenon has been repeated across much of Western Europe, although in Wales the effect occurred earlier. Now only Scotland has lower life expectancy. Dr Ciarán Humphreys, Director of Health Intelligence said: “The faltering of the decline in the overall mortality rate has been driven by increased deaths in the 85-89 and over-90s age groups. However, mortality rates among 55-84 year-olds are also no longer in decline. “Mortality rates rose significantly in 2015, attributed at least in part to increases in deaths from flu and pneumonia, and dementia and Alzheimer’s disease among those aged over 75. “The levelling off of mortality rates in Wales, in conjunction with a growing vulnerable elderly population, may mean that increases in mortality such as that seen in 2015 will be more likely in the future.” The initial findings of the Observatory’s report will lead to further research and ongoing monitoring by Public Health Wales, working closely with other UK-bodies. “The slowing of the improvement in mortality for Wales is a cause for concern,” continues Dr Humphreys. “We remain in close communication with the Office for National Statistics, Public Health England and other organisations studying the changes to mortality trends, to monitor the ongoing pattern of mortality and explore the underlying factors,” he concludes. The report can be viewed at the Public Health Wales Observatory page: Mortality in Wales 2012 -2016
