The Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment have released a new toolkit – Climate Change Toolkit for Health Professionals – which has been created as a resource that can be used by CAPE members and other health professionals who want to become move actively engaged in the issue.

The modules in the Toolkit have been created to provide a solid foundation on climate science and international agreements, global health impacts and the health impacts being experienced in Canada, and the sources of and trends in climate emissions across Canada.  It also provides a good base of information on the immediate health co-benefits associated with a number of climate solutions, the actions that can be taken in health care facilities to mitigate and adapt to climate change, the actions that can be taken in our communities to minimize the health impacts associated with climate change, and ideas about how health professionals can engage in the issue.
