    PHO Rounds: Improving Our Community Environments for Health

    Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) including heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancers and their associated risk factors are now leading causes of mortality, morbidity and healthcare costs. At the same time, growing evidence shows the importance of the built environment in the risk and protective factors of NCDs. There are opportunities for improving the health of our populations, including the most vulnerable in our communities such as seniors and those impacted by inequities, through policy and environmental approaches to NCDs. Successful implementation examples from various jurisdictions will be shared as well as current opportunities. 

    By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

    1. Summarize the burdens of NCDs in Canada and globally 
    2. Identify three key findings from the evidence for built environment and policy interventions for NCDs
    3. Discuss the policy and practice implementation opportunities for built environment approaches to: 
      NCDs and health equity through lessons from various jurisdictions and current initiatives

    SYNOPSIS

    Caregivers and families of autistic people have experienced considerable stress and mental health difficulties as a result of COVID-19 social distancing measures. Dr. Vivian Lee will present the results of a knowledge synthesis that includes media items, organizational reports, peer-reviewed literature, and grey literature. The work highlighted the potential long-term impact of prolonged exposure to increasing demands on the mental health and wellbeing of caregivers and families of autistic people, how families are activating individual and community-based coping strategies, and pointed to a need for the rapid development and evaluation of flexible and timely support programs.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on children and youth experiencing eating disorder behaviours and their families/clinicians. With the uncertain nature of the pandemic, patients are experiencing heightened anxieties and engaging in eating disorder behaviours; parents are struggling with first-time home monitoring for their child; and clinicians are challenged with providing the same level of care virtually, while using unfamiliar telehealth techniques. Dr. Jennifer Couturier will present recommendations from the Canadian Consensus Panel and the findings that family-based therapy and/or cognitive behavioral therapy delivered by telemedicine may be viable options for children and youth with eating disorders.

    Target Audience:
    Pediatric/youth healthcare practitioners,
    Patients,
    Families,
    Researchers,
    Trainees

    Learning outcomes:
    - Potential long-term Impacts of pandemic on mental health of caregivers of people with autism
    - Best practices for virtual support of children and youth with eating disorder behaviours
    - Managing mental health and well-being for families and vulnerable children and youth during a pandemic

    2020 Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH) Symposium

    Audience: Of interest to health care professionals.

    Level: Introductory

    What you’ll learnParticipants will appreciate the importance of critical appraisal, understand potential sources of bias in published literature, and learn practical methods for evaluating some of the most common types of publications to assist their decision-making.

    • Dr. Britt Cooper-Jones, CADTH
    • Sarah Garland, CADTH
    • Dr. Joanne Kim, CADTH

    Note: Attendance is limited to 30 participants.

    Abstract:
    "Clinical trials show..."
    "A clinical practice guideline recommends..."
    "Statistically significant results demonstrate..."
    Health care professionals, policy-makers, and patients alike are bombarded with information and statements like this on a daily basis. With limited time but an abundance of studies, how can we make sense of it all? Do you turn to various interpretations of the literature, but wonder if they are truly relevant to your setting? Do you wish you could assess published papers for yourself, but don't know where to start or what questions to ask? Join CADTH for an introductory hands-on workshop that will enhance your knowledge of, and confidence with, critical appraisal. This session will explain several different types of published research and highlight the most important things to look for when determining the quality of studies. A significant portion of the workshop will be dedicated to applying and practicing critical appraisal skills in small groups. Sample papers will be circulated in advance, and participants will need to pre-read the papers in preparation for interactive discussions. Geared to health care professionals, decision-makers, and patients needing quick-assessment skills to evaluate scientific papers, this workshop will appeal to anyone who wants to gain an introductory comfort in interpreting medical literature.

    OPHA in collaboration with Dr Alireza Khatami is hosting a webinar to provide an analysis of Canada and other nation's approach to COVID-19.

    About this Event

    COVID-19 Pandemic: Different Countries, Different Approaches

    The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to the world. After the outbreak of COVID-19, countries around the world have adopted different approaches to contain the virus according to their local context. Some nations have effectively curbed further widespread infection and taken measures to ensure a safe return to daily life. Nationally and provincially, Canada has adopted various approaches to control the spread of COVID-19, including training more people to expand contracting efforts, encouraging the public to download voluntary COVID-19 exposure notification app, enforcing regional lockdowns, travel restrictions and mandating population-wide use of masks. The interprovincial variation in Canada has demonstrated the unique vulnerabilities of each province to COVID-19 and has provided lessons for future health security challenges.

    Knowledge sharing on the approaches in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic among various countries is critical to ensure effective response and swift recovery from the crisis. To this end, OPHA is pleased to organize this webinar in collaboration with Dr. Alireza Khatami, who brings a PhD in Epidemiology and Public Health from Umeå University to facilitate an international analysis and comparison of Canada’s containment efforts to other countries.

    Please note: this hour-long webinar will be hosted live on January 26, 2021 from 12:00pm-1:00pm EST.

    Waakebiness-Bryce Institute for Indigenous Health

    Healing Medicine: (Re) Discovering Ceremony at the End of Life

    Abstract:

    Ceremony is an integral form of medicine for many Indigenous people. In an effort to eradicate Indigenous peoples from Turtle Island, ceremonies were prohibited and criminalized by colonial governments. This impacted a vital aspect of Indigenous people’s identity and restricted access to the healing medicine of ceremony. Relationships with ceremony have been variable throughout many Indigenous peoples lives. The desire to practice ceremonies at the end of one’s life journey is strong not only in Indigenous people who have lived with ceremony but also in those that have not. I will share stories and experiences facilitating access to ceremony at the end of life for Indigenous people who have profoundly different life experiences.

    Biography:

    Dr. Michael Anderson is part of the urban Indigenous community in Toronto. He is Mohawk (Bear Clan)/English with family roots in Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory.

    2020 Canadian Agency for Drugs and Health Technologies (CADTH) Symposium

    Designing Research to Inform Decision-Making Using Value of Information Analyses

    Date: Wednesday, January 27, 2021 

    Time: 11:00 am – 1:00pm EST

    Audience: Of interest to policy-makers.

    LevelIntermediate.

    What you’ll learnThis workshop introduces four value of information (VoI) measures and highlights how VoI can determine research priorities that support decision-making. The assumptions of a VoI analysis and methods to display results graphically will also be presented.

    • Dr. Anna Heath, The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids)

    Abstract: VoI is a concept from decision analysis that considers whether the current evidence base for a health economic decision model is sufficient to make policy decisions. VoI can then be used to inform future research allocation. Furthermore, Vol measures can direct future research by determining the model inputs with the greatest influence on decision uncertainty. Finally, VoI methods can determine the optimal design for a research study that reduces decision uncertainty as efficiently as possible. Despite this versatility, VoI has rarely been used in practice because of a lack of familiarity, difficulties interpreting these measures, concerns about the assumptions underpinning them, and computational complexity. This workshop aims to address these issues by introducing the general concepts behind VoI, presenting key VoI measures and highlighting where they can be most useful in directing future research. It also demonstrates graphical presentations of these measures and discusses how to critically evaluate VoI analyses and their underlying assumptions. The workshop is a mixture of lectures, computer-based examples, and discussion sessions.

    This presentation details Canadian-led studies on the psychosocial impacts from communities who experienced large-scale disasters in Canada.

    There is no doubt that mental health challenges posed by disasters will increase due to climate, demographic and social changes. This presentation details findings from Canadian-led studies on the psychosocial impacts resulting from communities who experienced large-scale disasters in Canada. Such traumatic events include the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2019 Quebec spring floods, the 2016 Fort McMurray wildfires, and the 2013 Lac-Mégantic train derailment. There are links between observed psychosocial impacts and recovery during these recent disasters, with learnings that could be applied to the COVID-19 pandemic that could promote individual and community resilience following disasters. This session will be relevant to environmental and public health professionals in health prevention and health promotion roles.

    Presenter:

    Mélissa Généreux holds a doctorate in medicine, a master's degree in public health and a specialization in community medicine from the University of Montreal. After having been appointed as Director of Public Health for six years in the Estrie region, she now acts as a medical adviser both at the regional and provincial level in Quebec. She has developed an expertise in the field of disaster management and psychosocial recovery through her strong involvement during the Lac-Mégantic rail tragedy in 2013 that destroyed a large part of the downtown area, both as a researcher and as a decision-maker, as well as through her support brought to public health authorities as a consultant during the 2016 Fort McMurray fires in Alberta and the 2017 and 2019 spring floods in Quebec. As a member of the WHO Health Emergency and Disaster Risk Management Framework Research Network (TPRN), she has developed a strong international network and has contributed to several knowledge creation and transition activities in the field of disaster risk reduction (e.g. WHO expert meeting, workshops, conferences, scientific papers, reports, book chapters). She is currently leading two studies, one on the sociosanitary consequences during and after the 2019 spring floods in Quebec, and another on the psychological and behavioral response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    KT Connects - "Who’s ready for engagement with rural communities? Moving from stakeholders to partners in knowledge translation and exchange"

    Speaker - Dr. Neil Hanlon (PhD), Professor at University of Northern British Columbia

    What will be discussed? 

    Rural populations are historically underrepresented in health research. Simply having more research take place in rural settings, however, is not enough to address this gap in knowledge. We will consider the idea that community members may wish to be partners, and not merely ‘stakeholders,’ in research. To do so, we will explore community-based participatory research approach as a means to achieve a deeper commitment to rural health research. Such an approach presents exciting opportunities for knowledge translation and exchange, but it is important that everyone concerned have a realistic idea of their roles and responsibilities in a participatory research process.


    Learning objectives:

    • Examine the notion of stakeholder engagement in the context of community-based participatory research in rural and small town places.
    • Recognize the diversity and heterogeneity of rural community settings, and the challenges and opportunities these present for knowledge creation.
    • Consider the implications of participatory rural engagement for knowledge translation and exchange.

    The power of HIV antiretroviral therapy (ART) today is so profound that with proper treatment and care, most people with HIV can stay healthy and live a long and full life. Treatment also significantly reduces the risk of transmission, and people on effective HIV treatment can’t pass it on to a sexual partner.

    However, making treatment accessible and as safe as possible is critical to ending the HIV epidemic. Frontline service providers play a crucial role in supporting clients to understand HIV treatment and start, stay on, and – when necessary – change treatments.

    This webinar will look at the evolution of HIV treatment from the first licensed drug, AZT, to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), to new dual therapies and injectable formulations on the horizon. It will also explore critical considerations for people living with HIV in terms of starting, staying on and changing HIV treatment.

    This event will consist of a panel of students discussing the intersection of bioethics with racial disparities in Canadian healthcare.

    About this Event

    Thank you for your interest in this event led by Canadian Bioethics Society students during Black History Month, titled Bioethics & Racial Disparities in Healthcare: Student Perspectives. The event will consist of a panel of three students who will share deliberations on (a) how the field of bioethics can assist with addressing racial disparities in healthcare and (b) where bioethics, as a field, could do better to address this discrimination and inequity.

    To note: given the personal nature of this topic for many individuals and communities, especially in light of the ongoing systemic racism and oppression faced by Black communities, Indigenous peoples, and People of Colour, we ask that all attendees ensure respect towards other people, communities, races, and cultures during this conversation, and that this be kept at the forefront of our minds while engaging in associated reflections.

    Speaker Details: *to be added once panelists are confirmed*

    Virtual Symposium on Population Health’s Past, Present, and Future

    With the onset of the COVID-19 era, we are at somewhat of a crossroads in the field of population health research. Data from several countries is demonstrating massive racial and socioeconomic inequalities in risk for acquiring Covid-19 and for the most severe associated outcomes. In Canada, this data has caused a groundswell of public and political attention on health inequalities, and of discourses about what policies may best address them. At this moment in time, it is well worth taking stock of the field of population health, which hasn’t been done for some time. What are the major findings of the 21st century to date? Where is the field headed in terms of its conceptual orientation to population health and health inequalities? What are the major data and methodological developments that will facilitate innovative population health research? What systems and structures would facilitate the uptake of findings from population health science in order to inform policies and other ways of making structural changes to society?

    Major Emerging Insights in Population Health

    We are in a period where there are some critical emergent population health phenomena that require spotlighting.  Life expectancy in many population groups is stagnating or outright declining.  Socioeconomic health inequalities are growing. A growing literature implicates neoliberal economic trends and policy trajectories.  Covid-19 has also had large implications for population health and health inequities.  This session will explore these issues.

    Virtual Symposium on Population Health’s Past, Present, and Future

    With the onset of the COVID-19 era, we are at somewhat of a crossroads in the field of population health research. Data from several countries is demonstrating massive racial and socioeconomic inequalities in risk for acquiring Covid-19 and for the most severe associated outcomes. In Canada, this data has caused a groundswell of public and political attention on health inequalities, and of discourses about what policies may best address them. At this moment in time, it is well worth taking stock of the field of population health, which hasn’t been done for some time. What are the major findings of the 21st century to date? Where is the field headed in terms of its conceptual orientation to population health and health inequalities? What are the major data and methodological developments that will facilitate innovative population health research? What systems and structures would facilitate the uptake of findings from population health science in order to inform policies and other ways of making structural changes to society?


    DAY 4 (MORNING OF FEBRUARY 26, 2021):

    How Does Population Health Science Touch the Public Discourse and Policies?

    While continued investment in the development of population health science is crucial, there is also growing recognition of the importance of communicating the current body of research to the public and policymakers.  In Canada, policymakers are drawing on population health science to understand how to form income assistance policy.  In the era of Covid-19, the importance of communicating population health science to the public and to policymakers has been made even more apparent.
