Description

Climate change affects the social and environmental determinants of health such as clean air, sufficient food, safe drinking water and secure shelter, and may be considered a threat to health. Healthcare professionals have been called to take action on carbon reduction. Action depends on various factors such as personal commitment to environmental issues and professionals’ understanding of climate change, and action may occur at individual, organisational, community, national and international levels. As public health is a core component of the nurse’s role, this learning module discusses the health effects of climate change and suggests ways to address these effects.

Objectives

The aims of this module are to challenge nurses’ understanding of the relationship between climate change and health, and encourage reflection on action that may be taken to mitigate, build resilience, and adapt to the health effects of climate change.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Discuss the health effects of climate change.
Describe activities to reduce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions.
Consider action that nurses can take at individual, organisational, community, national and international levels to reduce the effects of climate change.
Recognise the role of nurses as global citizens for health.
