Videos for Boards - Public Health Governance: Leadership in an Integrated Health System

The Alliance for Healthier Communities has developed two recorded webinars for Boards of Health:  

  • Foundational Health Care and Public Health Systems
  • Advancing Health Equity in an Integrated Health System

 

These videos are designed to be used around the Board table to support systems-informed actions to advance public health priorities for health equity and the determinants of health in an integrated health system. 

The videos take a closer look at the health care and public health systems in Canada and Ontario.  Next, they explore trends in the health system including system and service integration, efficiency and cost containment, a focus on outcomes and population health data, and shifting services to community. The implications and opportunities for public health are presented with examples of leading Board of Health actions to advance population health and a more equitable health system.

The videos, along with an overview and resource handout, are available in the free PHESC "course" Public Health Governance: Leadership in an Integrated Health System. Registration is quick and easy.

Given the rapid pace of change in Ontario's health sector, we are making the English versions available now. French versions of the videos are under development and will be available soon -- watch for an announcement! 


Coming soon...


See a list of upcoming PHESC events on the phesc.ca website. Also in development: online courses in public health interventions, introductory epidemiology concepts, and more.

How can the Self-evaluation Tool for Action in Partnership help you? 
Public health professionals collaborate with others and participate in partnerships throughout their careers. This tool allows members of partnerships to evaluate themselves and learn about the requirements for effective partnership work. This tool is an English translation/adaptation of the Outil diagnostique de l’action en partenariat, created in French, in Québec, in 2008. It is now available in both official languages and can facilitate bilingual evaluation within or across partnerships. The target audience for the Self-evaluation Tool for Action in Partnership also includes any members of a partnership who have decided to participate in self-evaluation.

Comment l’Outil diagnostique de l’action en partenariat peut-il vous aider? 
Les professionnels de la santé publique collaborent avec d’autres personnes et participent à des partenariats tout au long de leur carrière. Cet outil permet aux membres de partenariats de poser un diagnostic sur leur partenariat et d’apprendre à connaître les conditions d’efficacité de l’action en partenariat. Cet outil est aujourd’hui offert dans les deux langues officielles et peut faciliter une évaluation bilingue d’un ou de plusieurs partenariats. Le public cible de l’Outil diagnostique de l’action en partenariat comprend aussi tous les membres d’un partenariat ayant décidé de poser un diagnostic sur celui-ci.
