The Australasian Faculty of Public Health Medicine (AFPHM) document Public Health Physicians: Protecting, Promoting and Improving Health for the Whole Community articulates the value of Public Health Physicians, credentialled as Fellows of the Australasian Faculty of Public Health Medicine (FAFPHMs), to the contemporary public health workforce and promotes their capacity to contribute to the broader health system. It is intended to inform health system decision makers and influencers in strategic and workforce planning by describing the skills, expertise and roles of Public Health Physicians. It highlights that Public Health Physicians ensure effective leadership, advocacy and better health outcomes by articulating that:
- Public Health Physicians are medical specialists with a duty of care for populations rather than individuals.
- Public Health Physicians are trained to solve complex health problems and make sound evidence-based decisions at a systems-level. They are trained to lead complex change management including health promotion and disease prevention, systems reform, strategic planning, and performance monitoring required to meet heath needs.
- Public Health Physicians lead policy reforms and interventions to transform population health in ways that are evidence-based and cost-effective.
- Protection of public health is a key role of government and Public Health Physicians work across government portfolios.
