Men’s Health Programme: Innovative nurse-led projects to improve the health of male patients

The Men’s Health Forum states that

On average, more than one in five men is still dying between the ages 16 and 65, and more than two in five before the age of 75 – with death rates amongst men in the poorest areas of the country being even worse.

Key areas of concern are heart disease, obesity, cancer, suicide, diabetes and poor lifestyle choices (Men’s Health manifesto 2014).

In response to these concerns, the QNI is running a year long programme to support eleven local nurse-led projects that aim to improve the health of men. The projects all take place in community settings and address physical or mental health, or a combination of the two.
