Public Health Training for Equitable Systems Change (PHESC)
The Public Health Training for Equitable Systems Change (PHESC) project is an exciting collaboration between the NCCDH, the University of Toronto, the NCCs for Methods and Tools and Healthy Public Policy, the Alliance for Healthier Communities, the Ontario Public Health Association, Public Health Ontario and the Wellesley Institute.
Training for Ontario public health units
Funded by a grant from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, the purpose of the project is to design and create a comprehensive training plan to improve knowledge, skills and performance of Ontario’s public health workforce while integrating a health equity approach.
Implementing Ontario Public Health Standards
Guided by the Ontario Health Equity Guideline, 2018, the NCCDH has developed an interactive and participatory training program for all public health staff, professionals and leaders in Ontario. The NCCDH will be offering a series of webinars, in-person workshops, practice tools and resources in order to support Ontario Public Health Units operationalizing the health equity requirements of the Ontario Public Health Standards.
Starting January 2019
In addition to the requirements, the NCCDH will be delivering an introduction to health equity, public health roles and racial equity training.
The offerings will be available in early 2019. Learn more about the project here.
