Advancing Clean Air, Climate, & Health: Opportunities for Nurses


There is growing evidence and concerns about the impacts of climate change on health and how to respond to these impacts. Information about health risks associated with a variety of climate changes such as heat waves, droughts, wildfires, droughts, and flooding provides nurses an opportunity to inform and limit adverse health impacts. Nurses are one of the most trusted health professionals and their engagement on this issue can have a significant, positive impact on the health of their patients, communities, and policy decisions.

Goals that will be addressed through the web based media module advocacy campaign for clean energy and clean air policies include:

  • Discussion of how the Clean Air Act impacts climate change and public health
  • Description of how the Clean Air Act has improved health and how nurses can effectively advocate for stronger clean air and clean energy policies
  • An exploration of how natural disasters are associated with climate change, clean air, and energy
