Webinar: Tools for organizational learning and capacity
This webinar will take place in English.
The NCCDH has developed a suite of bilingual learning tools designed to build the knowledge, skills and attitudes (competencies) of public health staff to integrate a health equity focus into their everyday work:
- Online course developed in partnership with Public Health Ontario
- Webinar-based training program, guided by the Ontario Health Equity Guideline, 2018
- Health equity learning pathway for public health middle managers
These tools respond to a growing need for free, virtual training on the structural and social determinants of health as they relate to public health practice and advancing health equity.
This webinar will provide a brief overview of these three NCCDH online learning tools, including their distinct audiences and functions. Participants will learn how these tools can be integrated into organizational training processes as well as how they can support individual self-directed learning and professional development.
Who should attend this webinar?
- Those looking for actionable professional development tools related to health equity and Canadian public health practice. This may include:
- leaders choosing tools for staff;
- practitioners looking for their own professional development resources; and
- practitioners assigned a specific role to find tools for their peers/team/colleagues.
- Public health students (e.g., MPH candidates) looking for introductory health equity resources with relevance for Canadian public health practice
