Implementation of training activities

Training other health-care professionals

This process involved giving lectures, leading tutorials, writing articles, and engaging in training programmes. The focus was on clinical history taking and clinical and community interventions.

Training within existing programmes

Some of our trainers worked within existing organisational structures (eg, community health worker organisations, primary care nurse groups, medical school, and public health courses) to teach about clinical presentations, community interventions, and air pollution.

Community interventions

Some trainers engaged in community projects. An example of this was a trainer who worked with engineers to build low-cost air pollution sensors, and then placed these at health centres. The air pollution data generated was used to train the health centre staff, educate patients in the community using a citizen science approach, and to advocate for transdisciplinary action to reduce community sources of air pollution.
