Communicating Health Equity Data for Action
January 17, 2018 - 13:00 - 14:30 ET
Offered by the National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (NCCHDH)
This webinar was available in English only.
Population health status or community assessment reports represent data that has been collected, analyzed and presented to describe the health of a group, community or geographical area. Population health status reports (PHSR) can inform what practitioners and decision-makers need to know to allocate resources as well as plan programs and services.
Because of this purpose, communication is a critical component of how knowledge mobilization happens in equity-integrated population health status reporting. Communicating PHSR data effectively means making sure that audiences — including decision- and policy-makers — have current information presented in a way that makes it useable to influence programs and priorities. Data can be produced and communicated in ways that appeal to different audiences and bring attention to the underlying reasons that contribute to health inequities across the population.
This English-language webinar will focus on communicating health equity data to public health decision-makers who address population health inequities. Strategies for framing health equity data to highlight the root causes of inequities will be presented, as well as approaches to knowledge translation and mobilization in the health status reporting of data relating to the social determinants of health.
This webinar can support the fulfillment of Medical Officer of Health competencies, especially “monitoring and assessing the health of the public” and “communication, collaboration, and advocacy for the public’s health.”
