INNOVATIONS IN PUBLIC HEALTH EDUCATION: ARTS AND MULTI-MEDIA METHODS TO SUPPORT ENGAGED LEARNING

9 h à 12 h

Through an interactive session, this workshop will explore experiential learning pedagogy and its application to building competencies in public health. The session will demonstrate some of these educational innovations, involving gamification, role play, interactive online instruments, scenario challenges, and real-time problem solving. Using examples from public health curricula, the session will involve participants in experiential learning exercises, using case scenarios, interactive challenges, and exploration of hot topics in public health. 

This workshop will demonstrate ways to use innovative arts-based and multi-media teaching tools for public health education, by involving participants as learners in specific teaching exercises. The workshop will provide participants with tools that are adaptable for teaching in various disciplines, interprofessional education, or workplace training.

Séances de l'après-midi

CANADA’S LOWER-RISK CANNABIS USE GUIDELINES: SUPPORTING IMPLEMENTATION AFTER LEGISLATION

13 h à 16 h

As Canada moves toward legalizing and regulating cannabis, credible and evidence-based information will be critical for public health professionals to effectively prevent and reduce cannabis-related risks and harms. 

This workshop will support public health professionals to be ready for legalization of cannabis for non-medical purposes with an understanding of the best available evidence on the public health risks and potential harms. Participants will have the opportunity to shape the knowledge products they require to implement the recommendations across Canada, learn more about the risks and harms of cannabis and inform the future development of additional information products required for different community settings and priority populations.

LONG-TERM PUBLIC HEALTH RESPONSES FOR LONG-TERM EVACUEES DUE TO DISASTERS IN CANADA

13 h à 16 h 30

Des frais d’inscription supplémentaires sont exigés : 20 $

Very little is known in Canada about long-term public health responses to natural and man-made disasters and the needs of long-term evacuees following immediate emergency responses. Furthermore, there are significant knowledge gaps regarding the systemic and structural inequities that put First Nations, Métis, Inuit, rural and remote individuals and communities at particular risk, as well as community-specific public health needs after disasters. The National Collaborating Centres for Public Health (NCCs) are initiating a two-year project to understand the information needs of public health practitioners for appropriate long-term planning and responses for long-term evacuees, and to help meet those knowledge needs with timely and relevant tools and resources.

This session will bring together public health personnel, including emergency preparedness planners at all levels, medical officers of health, national Indigenous organizations, researchers, epidemiologists, and students to explore public health roles to support long-term evacuees in Canada after typical emergency response interventions conclude.

Séances d'un journée entière

BEYOND TRAUMA-INFORMED CARE: STATE-OF-THE-ART INNOVATION IN PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTICE

9 h à 16 h
Des frais d’inscription supplémentaires sont exigés (un déjeuner n'est pas compris)

  • Participant : 75 $
  • Étudiant: 50 $

Trauma-informed care (TIC) was originally conceptualized approximately 40 years ago with the goal of reducing the likelihood of further traumatization or re-traumatization of clients. More recently, trauma- and violence-informed care (TVIC) has taken this approach a step further by recognizing the interaction of trauma with violence. This perspective not only includes interpersonal violence, but also incorporates an intersectoral perspective informed by social categories, structures and conditions that impact health and well-being. An overview of the basic tenets of TIC will be provided, followed by a review of recent developments in TVIC that acknowledge health inequities in both past and present institutional policies and practices. Special attention will be paid to the legacy of the residential school system. Attendees will engage with interactive hands-on case studies concerning the implementation and evaluation of TVIC in public health practice.

L’ENGAGEMENT DE JEUNES AVEC EXPÉRIENCE VÉCUE DANS LA PLANIFICATION DE POLITIQUES ET PROGRAMMES DE SANTÉ PUBLIQUE ET LE TRANSFERT DES CONNAISSANCES

9 h à 16 h
Des frais d’inscription supplémentaires sont exigés (déjeuner compris)

  • Participant : 60 $
  • Étudiant, jeunes et fournisseurs de service communautaire : 20 $

Cette séance sera bilingue.

La jeunesse au cœur de l’action veut s’assurer que les frais d’inscription ne soient pas un obstacle à la participation. Des places subventionnées sont offertes en nombre limité. Veuillez contacter info@wisdom2action.org pour en savoir plus.

Bien que les instances nationales et internationales soulignent la nécessité d’impliquer les personnes aux prises avec la maladie dans la planification de leurs soins, nous ne savons pas suffisamment comment nous y prendre. Dans la population en général, les jeunes sont habituellement tenus à l’écart de la planification des politiques et des programmes de santé publique. Pourtant, l’engagement des jeunes est reconnu dans divers champs disciplinaires comme stratégie efficace pour le développement individuel et collectif et l’amélioration de la santé.

Cette séance abordera les raisons et les manières de favoriser l’engagement des jeunes sous une forme adaptable à divers organismes et projets. Nous nous appuierons sur des enseignements tirés de différents exemples, notamment celui du comité consultatif des jeunes de La jeunesse au cœur de l’action. Les participants auront la chance d’entendre le point de vue de jeunes et de professionnels ayant une longue expérience en matière d’engagement des jeunes.

TESTING INNOVATION: ADDRESSING GAPS AND INSPIRING INNOVATION IN STBBI TESTING IN CANADA  

9 h à 16 h

Des frais d’inscription supplémentaires sont exigés (un déjeuner n'est pas compris) : 25 $

In Canada and worldwide, sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBIs) continue to be a significant individual health issue and public health burden. Despite the fact that STBBIs can largely be prevented, and in some cases cured, the burden of STBBIs remains a significant public health concern. Globally, the push to eliminate HIV, hepatitis C and other STIs as a public health threat by 2030 is an elusive goal. In Canada, in order to meet the commitment made to Canadians, there is an urgent need to reach the right people, at the right time, at the right place, with the most effective STBBI programs which include testing as a central component. Robust testing and linkages to services are gateways to prevention, treatment and care, and part of an effective, comprehensive strategy to address STBBIs in Canada.

This session will bring together a variety of STBBI stakeholders, including health researchers, health policy decision-makers, industry partners, public health officials, and community-based service providers. Building on a pre-conference session hosted at Public Health 2017, this session will provide an overview of the burden of STBBIs in Canada with an emphasis on identifying and addressing gaps in testing. During this CME accredited interactive workshop, participants will be engaged to inspire innovative responses and identify effective mechanisms to address STBBI testing gaps through a variety of approaches, including presentations, small group discussions and case study examples. 

Ojectifs d'apprentissage:

  • Identify gaps in our collective efforts to reach people living with STBBIs
  • Apply implementation science to innovative programming approaches to STBBI testing
  • Describe patient-centered access to STBBI testing services
  • Assess national and provincial policy and programming gaps
