Description

Health Equity Workshop for Public Health Practitioners

Overview:

This 3-day workshop provides practical tools and instruction to all public health practitioners to modify and re-orient their practices to reduce health inequities. This unique and original workshop is specifically designed to assist the public health practitioner in meeting the requirements of the new Standards for Public Health Programs and Services for health equity. Participants will have the opportunity to explore critical practice questions from "What is evidence?" to "How can public health change income distribution?" and "What if my community wants to work on an intervention not supported by good evidence?" The content included in this workshop is based in public health and social science research.

**Please Note: All partipants are required to bring a laptop computer with them on each of the three days**

Target Audience:

This workshop is applicable to the work of all public health practitioners at all organizational levels: nurses, health promoters, epidemiologists, community developers, physicians, etc. No prior exposure to health equity work is required. The small class size and mixed small-group/large-group/independent activity structure allows for customization of the workshop to meet the needs of a variety of participants.

Covers Both Areas of Health Equity Work:

  • Building the capacity of public health professionals to do health equity work by making necessary discussions of social justice and health equity topics non-threatening, concrete, and relevant to our current work
  • Modifying public health assessment, reporting, planning, implementation and evaluation work to be more collaborative and adequately address health inequities

Workshop features:

  • 18 hours of in-class instruction using adult learning principles ( including small group work, practical take-away resources, and multi-media aids)
  • Complete, online lessons that participants will use to support learning at the workshop and have unlimited access to thereafter
  • Online, unlimited access to our Health Equity Action Kit that contains original tools for Health Equity Impact Assessments, Health Equity Data Reporting, Logic Model, Evaluation Plan, and Work-plan – all designed to support health equity work
  • Online, unlimited access to our original Health Equity Teaching Tools (Individual reflection and group activities and resources for independent reading) for facilitating knowledge development

After this workshop you will be able to:

  • Implement the personalized work-plan you created in the workshop to address the capacity building or health equity needs of your health unit or community – or both!
  • Immediately use your new Health Equity Action Kit to reduce health inequities faced by the clients you serve
  • Immediately use your new Health Equity Teaching Tools to build the capacity of your peers and partners for health equity work
  • Take advantage of the group learning and knowledge development activities in our online Community of Practice which will be facilitated by the workshop developer/instructor.
