HPH Schools

The HPH Schools (Summer, Autumn, or Winter) are opportunities to gain insights and inspiration in the area of Health Promotion (HP) in hospitals and health services. The HPH Schools are yearly recurring events that target National/Regional HPH Coordinators, HPH Hospital/Health Service Coordinators, HPH Task Force Leaders and Members, as well as other interested health care providers and administrators.

The HPH Schools are structured as a combination of lectures from highly qualified experts on research and implementation, workshops, group work, and plenum discussions. This facilitates a close collaboration and sharing of experience, and it allows the participants to get inspired, get involved hands-on, and get ready to do a real difference with their own HP work. 

The HPH Schools take place all over the world, and they are hosted collaboratively between the Clinical HEalth Promotion Centre in Copenhagen (who host the HPH secretariat) and the relevant National/Regional Network. Below, you can read more about the upcoming HPH Schools and download material from the past ones.
