Webinar: Design and modus operandi of a tool based on a reflexive approach (Reflex-ISS) to encourage the integration of equity into public health practices
- Friday, March 17, 2017 (English) 1-2:00 EDT
- Wednesday, March 22, 2017 (French) 1-2:00 EDT
The REFLEX-ISS tool was created to help stakeholders identify and address social inequalities of health at every stage of their action to improve population health. This tool was recently adapted and tested in Quebec. Throughout a project life cycle, the tool helps galvanize conversation between stakeholders working in partnership. It builds on reflexive and meaningful professional practices through which stakeholders working together on an intervention can collectively consider how they are addressing social inequalities of health in their approach and explore potential improvements.
The webinar will be used to promote the tool, and examine how to apply it using the case example of the Montérégie (Québec) public health unit. We will also discuss the added value of the REFLEX-ISS tool as a collaborative approach to better address social inequalities of health in public health interventions.
Webinar participants will:
- Learn how to use the tool, its application, structure, content, and general approach;
- Know how it was adapted and tested in Quebec to meet the realities of different practice settings;
- Understand the added value of the REFLEX-ISS tool, as well as relevant challenges, opportunities and steps;
- Discuss barriers and facilitators of a reflexive approach to reduce social inequalities of health;
- Question the tool’s application in their work environment: facilitators, barriers, successes;
- Interact with professionals involved in the design and field testing of the tool;
- Share their experience in terms of actions to address social inequalities of health.
