Hello and welcome to today's University of Nottinghams #AllOurHealth tweetchat on Air Pollution Lets get started straight away with QUESTION 1 What information do you currently share with patients and families re air pollution ? https://t.co/PC4GA28pGg

20 August 2020 15:03
@WeLearnOutLoud Can I be honest and say I haven't given air pollution much thought until this week's #AllOurHealth. I have never come across it as a topic during placements or even private life. Nottingham has relatively clean air, however I will be more aware now as it is on my radar.
@WinfieldLorna
20 August 2020 15:03
#AllOurHealth I currently share information regarding the importance of trying to make small changes where possible, such as visiting green space, using public transport or cycling where possible and having boilers checked regularly.
@stnbettycoop
20 August 2020 15:04
@WeLearnOutLoud Currently not a lot of information. Other than advising COPD and asthmatic patients to avoid being high polluted areas. Moving forward, I aim to be more proactive in sharing air pollution information and resources #allourhealth

#AllOurHealth since completing this module I can now share information about the air pollution forecast which I was unaware of before hand.

QUESTION 2 What are the barriers to sharing information about air pollution with patients and families? #AllOurHealth https://t.co/mPT8G9lI7a
@Jonatha16988918
20 August 2020 15:06
@WeLearnOutLoud currently none. As a mental health nursing student, I'm finding it difficult think what situation it would be suitable for me to share this kind of information within. however I do understand it impacts all our health #AllOurHealth
@WeLearnOutLoud
20 August 2020 15:06
That sounds like a good thing Lorna :) we’ve much to rebel we, but at least you now know @PHE_uk had great resources to reference and share if you need them #allourhealth https://twitter.com/winfieldlorna/status/1296448134340661248
@WinfieldLorna
20 August 2020 15:07
#AllOurHealth barriers could include length of time spent with a patient and the reason for their admission. For example if the patient was admitted for reasons relating to their mental health we may not have the opportunity to speak about air pollution etc
@stnbettycoop
20 August 2020 15:08
@WeLearnOutLoud Some guidelines and procedures can be daunting to patients with existing conditions, as they might find the information complex and life-limiting. Having open discussions with patients could help reduce anxieties and allow the patient to ask questions #AllOurHealth

@WeLearnOutLoud Personally, the biggest barrier for me is telling a patient/family about it but what can they really do? Of course there are small steps but if someone lives in the middle of a city then it's hard to really change much as humans design things that create pollution #AllOurHealth
@WeLearnOutLoud
20 August 2020 15:11
This is a good point indeed #AllOurHealth https://twitter.com/bridgeteleri/status/1296449235341254656
@Jonatha16988918
20 August 2020 15:11
Relating back to mental health nursing, I think there could be many barriers. People with agoraphobia or people that are experiencing high levels of anxiety are just a couple of examples where it may not be possible to convey this type of information to #AllOurHealth
@ElliPhi64824504
20 August 2020 15:14
@WeLearnOutLoud Information should be feasible, not unrealistic like 'stay indoors all the time'.Vulnerable people should be informed where they can obtain up to date information regarding pollution episodes so they can take necessary action to reduce their risk of health worsening #AllOurHealth
@WeLearnOutLoud
20 August 2020 15:14
One of the things to consider is now you are aware of the impact of the problem can we ensure we are also not part of the problem? #AllOurHealth https://twitter.com/bridgeteleri/status/1296449235341254656
@WeLearnOutLoud
20 August 2020 15:15
QUESTION 3 What is the best approach to take when sharing information with patients and families re air pollution? #AllOurHealth https://t.co/Ocrp5mOPZw
@WinfieldLorna
20 August 2020 15:17
#AllOurHealth It is best to use evidence and information and resources to share the information. It should be delivered in a way in which the patient feels it is something which they can understand and something which will help them.
@BridgetEleri
20 August 2020 15:18
@WeLearnOutLoud Yes I can see why it is a health priority and I can make the changes possible in my life so that I'm not a big contributor. I do wonder if there are SO many things for us to be scared of and weary of that this might seem too much for patients? #AllOurHealth
@ElliPhi64824504
20 August 2020 15:19
@WeLearnOutLoud Lack of knowledge and training in this area may mean that healthcare professionals do not feel confident speaking to patients about this. Assumptions that patients won't listen or are able make changes may be a barrier too #AllOurHealth

@WeLearnOutLoud Not a scaremongering one for sure! To talk about it on an individual level with clear facts and resources to guide them AND not all doom and gloom - a positive conversation #AllOurHealth
@stnbettycoop
20 August 2020 15:20
@WeLearnOutLoud When patients present with illnesses that air pollution impacts. Giving them the information early allows them to be aware of the risks. This could be telling them to close their windows or change their cleaning products to reduce indoor chemicals. Prevention is key #allourhealth
@WeLearnOutLoud
20 August 2020 15:20
@BridgetEleri One would look to focus on the esssntial advice for each patient perhaps :) #AllOurHealth

@WeLearnOutLoud Empowering patients with up to date information so that they are able to take action themselves. Give them access to resources like Defra's UK Air Website, Air Text and patient information leaflets from Healthy Lungs for Life #AllOurHealth
@Mercy13648661
20 August 2020 15:23
@WeLearnOutLoud #AllOurHealth Currently I share the importance of using alternative transport when possible. E.G walking to the shops instead of taking the car or Using a bicycle for transportation when travelling short distances e.g to a friends house.
@PAvajah
20 August 2020 15:24
@WeLearnOutLoud #AllOurHealth Some barriers could be lack of knowledge which could reduce confidence. Another barrier could be the assumption that patient's won't want to listen or make changes.
@WeLearnOutLoud
20 August 2020 15:25
And finally ... When and where should information re air pollution be shared with patients and their families?? #AllOurHealth https://t.co/le99h4Ix5n
@PAvajah
20 August 2020 15:26
@WeLearnOutLoud #AllOurHealth i think the best approach is to be calm and not come across too daunting. This is because it will help people listen to what you have to say and take in the information. When communication it's important to be friendly and open
@Mercy13648661
20 August 2020 15:26
#AllOurHealth Due to infrastructure or ease, patients/ family may not be willing to change their habits to reduce air pollution. This is a barrier regarding cleaner air initiatives.
@PAvajah
20 August 2020 15:27
@WeLearnOutLoud #AllOurHealth information should be shared in the ward or communities. it could be shown on posters, adverts and online resources. It can be shared by word of mouth as well when communicating with patients that are admitted in the ward
@stnbettycoop
20 August 2020 15:27
@WeLearnOutLoud As soon as possible, sharing information that prevents illnesses or their conditions getting worse is important. PHE has some clear and informative posters that can help patients understand airpollution better, without them having to read lengthy guidelines/policies #AllOurHealth
@BridgetEleri
20 August 2020 15:28
@WeLearnOutLoud I was just thinking about this... You might see a patient because of a broken leg/sexual health check up/chemo, you're not going to talk about CVD, smoking, mental health and air pollution all in that meeting. I think maybe start with patients deemed at risk? #AllOurHealth
@WinfieldLorna
20 August 2020 15:28
#AllOurHealth information should be shared when necessary to help improve the health of our patient. Such as, speaking about air pollution and the sources of this to patients who present with exacerbation of asthma.
