Webinar: Mapping equity - Using data mapping to drive cross-sector collaboration
This is the first in a four-part webinar series exploring current Canadian issues associated with equity-integrated population health status reporting, equity indicators, local data and health equity outcomes. The focus is on data to drive community action to improve health equity. Each webinar features special guests to showcase the diversity of strategies and approaches being undertaken across Canada.
This webinar will focus on two examples of how mapping equity indicators has supported intersectoral collaboration between public health and municipal planners, and between public health and primary health care. It will introduce the Canadian Council on Social Determinants of Health (CCSDH) resource, “Maps to Inform Intersectoral Planning and Action.”
This webinar will explore:
- The CommunityView Collaboration data sharing tool developed jointly by the Saskatoon Regional Health Authority and the City of Saskatoon.
- Local public health and primary care partnership in advancing health equity and SDOH in the Kingston, Frontenac, and Lennox & Addington region (Ontario), including the SDOH Mapper.
