PUBLIC HEALTH AND HEALTH SYSTEM RENEWAL
Presented by: Canadian Public Health Association
Over the last several years provincial and territorial governments have made significant adjustments to the ways in which they deliver health services, including public health. The resulting changes have raised concerns that these systems will no longer be able to meet the current mandate or address future concerns regarding public health service delivery. The Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA) ‒ with the assistance of an expert advisory panel of senior public health professionals, CPHA’s Public Policy Committee and Board of Directors, and an electronic membership consultation ‒ has developed a discussion paper that explores the fundamentals of public health governance in Canada, and a position statement describing the Association’s perspective on the future of public health service delivery.
The purpose of this workshop is to review the recommendations presented in the position statement and to seek members’ viewpoints on how to develop and implement advocacy concerning the future direction of public health delivery in Canada.
TRANSFORMING PUBLIC HEALTH KNOWLEDGE INTO ACTION FOR FIRST NATIONS
Presented by: Assembly of First Nations
Public health frameworks, strategies and models guide interventions and policies to promote health and reduce health disparities. First Nations' contributions to the scope and methodologies of evidence mobilizing and the formulation of public health interventions can strengthen uptake and relevance.
This collaborator session will emphasize public health agendas developed by First Nations that stimulate approaches that are established on strengths-based Indigenous methodologies, governance and knowledge systems.
