! JSNA 2018 - Updated
08 June 2018
Two further chapters of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) have been refreshed and updated and the revised chapters are available under the JSNA section. The two chapters cover the following topics:
- Life expectancy, mortality and long term conditions - This section of the JSNA considers the key public health issues of life expectancy, mortality and major long term causes of illness.
- Adults' lifestyles - a wide range of factors can impact on an individual’s health and wellbeing. Age, gender and family history of illness are examples of factors that an individual has no control over. However, lifestyle factors such as smoking and obesity also have a large impact on health, both individually and at the population level and can be influenced. This section of the 2018 Joint Strategic Needs Assessment explores adult lifestyle factors to determine the level of need and to gain a better understanding of adult health and wellbeing in St.Helens.
