Use of population-based health research in the context of public health
Submitted by Nicole / 15 May 2023, 14:01
Population-based studies provide extensive information on the health of the population and allow specific questions to be answered. In order to better use the results of the studies for the public health service, representatives of the public health service have the opportunity to become part of the scientific process and the research community JoinUs4Health in a series of events organised by the Academy for Public Health. This type of exchange is possible because three European cohort studies - including the SHIP study (Study of Health in Pomerania), which has been active in the Western Pomerania region since 1997 - have opened up for research cooperation with the public health service and other social actors.

Fit at older age
Submitted by HS86 / 12 April 2023, 11:21
Physical activity and sport are pillars of a healthy lifestyle regardless of age. Despite the many benefits of an active lifestyle, seniors move less and less in everyday life, so that their physical performance declines. The project "Fit im Alter" aims to maintain and improve the physical activity of older people and thus their health through structured training offers. The impulses for sport are to be used directly from the middle of the population and a training network is to be created. In the long term, the aim is to strengthen everyday skills and performance and also to improve confidence in one's own ability to perform, to expand the social network and thus to promote active participation in life.

Sedentary lifestyles – the invisible pandemic of the 21st century
Submitted by pawelsowa / 29 June 2022, 09:05
Sedentary lifestyles have become one of the independent factors affecting overall mortality in European countries in the 21st century . The World Health Organization estimates that nearly one in three people over the age of 15 have insufficient levels of daily physical activity, contributing to approximately 3.2 million deaths each year . For European countries, these estimates are even less optimistic, stating that almost one in two people has a sedentary lifestyle.
Gardening for Health: A community garden as a community support to strengthen the recovery of people experiencing a mental health crisis

It seems that today everything can be therapy. There is laughter therapy, apitherapy, cavioterapia, ornithological therapy... If, in a nutshell, we consider therapy to be a way to change, it seems that man needs change so much that he has invented various ways of doing it. Everyone can choose their own path. I believe in the power of the garden. And this is what I want to share. I believe, as Geoff Lawton, the permaculture specialist, says, that all the world's problems can be solved in the garden. Incidentally, I have this feeling that permaculture is something like a holistic approach to health. And returning to the subject of gardens and therapy, hortitherapy, or therapy through the garden, can also be added to the list. Horticulture was recognised as an official method of therapy in 1936 in England, and the first diploma in hortitherapy was handed out in the United States in the 1950s. For about a decade now, hortitherapy can also be studied at Polish universities. My life path has led me to a place where, as a gardener, hortiterapist and recovery assistant, I would like to support the recovery of people experiencing mental health crises and promote gardening as a way of healthy living. Hence the idea of a garden for health.
