throughout England
Workshop Objectives
1.
To explain the concept and principles of the PHILEAS
tool
2.
To demonstrate the application of the PHILEAS tool
Our starting point
Substance Misuse -Alcohol
Smoking in Pregnancy
Teenage Pregnancy
Infant Mortality
Obesity

Widening health inequalities

Major public health challenges
◦ demand:
 a strong interdisciplinary response
 the alleviation of “siloed” workforce planning.

National/regional strategies requiring collaboration and
joint strategic planning and delivery

Innovation, energy and enthusiasm
But...........
Requires a vehicle for ensuring that partner
professions understand and incorporate JSNA
objectives into their professional thinking and interprofessional action into their professional practice
Which requires a re-thinking (and broadening) of our
conception of the wider public health workforce
What is PHILEAS?

An educational assessment tool that
guides commissioners and others
through a simple yet effective process
for identifying the learning and
development needs of any multidisciplinary public health workforce:

Distinguishable from other tools:

Alleviates ‘siloed’ workforce planning.
Utilises group dynamic
Emphasises “ways’ of learning
Role for Commissioners

Principles Behind PHILEAS
•
Meeting population health needs requires a multidisciplinary
team response.
•
The approach taken builds
multidisciplinary workforce.
•
The procedures:
on
the
capability
of
a
– Bring different professional groups and agencies with differing
perspectives into the same conversation about workforce
development.
– Provoke analysis of roles and responsibilities in order to have a holistic
picture of knowledge and skills that are available and needed.
– Encourage participation of representatives from different disciplines
to understanding inter-professional interactions and learning needs.
Connect practitioners
•Jointly construct a community knowledge base
•Model knowledge sharing behaviors
•Model interactive learning through peer interaction

PHILEAS - the process

Four main stages to the process:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Stimulating engagement
Framework development
The assessment process
Developing opportunities

An iterative and interconnected process.

Equal weight and importance to each stage.

Success of the project overall is crucially dependent the initial
project initiation.

Success depends on:
1.
How the project was initially set up.
2.
Getting the whole system in the room – getting everyone talking
about the same world despite differences in language.
3.
Being prepared to address structural differences between
agencies:

open honest communication.

Promoting mutual respect and prioritising common ground.
4.
Being responsible for setting the overall trajectory but not the
outcome.
Why PHILEAS?

Systematic, evidence based, transparent process to determine
learning and development needs.

Encourages and facilitates strategic buy-in and alignment from the
start, thus facilitating early planning for implementation.

Top down and bottom up engagement.

Supports joint working and planning of services across sectors.

Supports World Class Commissioning competencies at an
organisational and individual level.
Discussion session:
Traditionally practitioners have come with a skills specification that is
derived from uni-disciplinary requirements for professional registration.
Public health strategies require multi-agency engagement and a sea
change in the commissioning process that expects a seamless delivery.
? What are the underpinning principles and key practicalities that need to
be tackled in the requirement for multi-agency engagement and
seamless service delivery of public health issues arising from the move
to JSNAs?
? What are the potential advantages of a process such as PHILEAS to
delivering on new national expectations and requirements as well as
implementing public health strategies?

PHSCF

A tool for describing the skills and knowledge needed for public
health.

A framework for anyone who wants to strengthen the contribution
their organisation makes to the public health function.

A framework for anyone interested in acquiring or developing
competencies and knowledge about improving and protecting the
health and well being of the population, even though this is not their
main area of work.
◦ Uses generic language to facilitate collaboration and coherence across this diverse
workforce, in order to maximise its collective contribution.
◦ Ensure rigour and consistency in skills, competence and knowledge at all levels,
regardless of professional background.
