Pathway continually looks at ways to improve health care for homeless patients in hospital.

Numerous needs assessments have identified staff education around homeless health care as a significant area for improvement.

To help address this, we have produced three online training modules on homeless health for Emergency Medicine staff and ward teams – hospital staff that see a high number of homeless patients.

Our online content consists of three bite-size video modules, approx. 25 minutes each, with associated questions and slides, that cover:

  • Homelessness and health – an introduction
  • Duty to Refer and housing law (with Covid context)
  • The difference you can make – practical things you can do to make a difference to someone who is currently homeless, when they arrive in hospital.
