Results from the CPHA policy and advocacy survey
Thanks to everyone who completed our recent policy survey. The results help us better understand what you expect and need from CPHA in the area of policy analysis and advocacy.
18% of CPHA members responded to the survey. You shared your input on completed, ongoing, and proposed policy and advocacy subjects.
The results indicate that there is broad general support among members for both the policy development and advocacy work that has been undertaken over the past two years. It also demonstrated support for several of the ongoing projects, as well as select subjects proposed by members and conference delegates. Lastly, it provided a relative priority for those subjects.
Of the “new” subjects identified, the two that should undergo policy analysis are: population mental wellness and immunization, while advocacy should continue on climate change and health system renewal.
We will continue to engage you around these subjects over the coming months.
