Description

This on-demand webinar focuses on assessing and reporting the needs of communities most affected by social and health inequities.

In line with requirement #1 of the Health Equity Standard under the Ontario Public Health Standards, and guideline 6.1 of the Ontario Health Equity Guideline, 2018, this on-demand webinar describes the importance of assessing for the existence and impact of health inequities and effective strategies to report these findings.

This content explores how to use an equity-integrated action framework for population health status reporting.


Listeners will learn about:

  • indicators and approaches used to identify health inequities

  • the importance of disaggregated data and intersectional analysis

  • public health’s role to assess health inequities at a population level

  • how public health can report on health inequities in a way that leads to action

Organizer National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health

Organizer of PHESC 2: Assessing and Reporting on Health Inequities

Integrating health equity and the social determinants of health into Canadian public health practice.

 

At the National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (NCCDH), we provide the Canadian public health community with knowledge and resources to take action on the social determinants of health, to close the gap between those who are most and least healthy.

 

We work with the public health field to move knowledge into action—in practice, in policy and in decision making—to achieve societal improvements that result in health for all.

 

We are one of six national collaborating centres funded through a Public Health Agency of Canada program.

We are hosted at St. Francis Xavier University (StFX) in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, which has a rich history in social justice beginning in the 1920s with the Antigonish Movement through to the founding of the Coady International Institute after WWII. The Institute is well respected worldwide as a centre for leadership education about community-based development. Situating the NCCDH here furthers StFX’s deep commitment to applying knowledge to social change.
