Full course description
This 3-hour course provides an overview of what to consider when designing, implementing and evaluating population health interventions. It links to many existing trainings and resources available that delve into topics in more detail. We have aligned the content with the 2018 Ontario Public Health Standards (OPHS) and accompanying Guidance Documents and Protocols. A certificate of completion will be available at the end of the course.
Module 1 is aimed at those who are new to public health. Module 2 will be most useful for those who do not necessarily have planning and evaluation as core responsibilities in their day-to-day work but will benefit from learning the necessary steps to more effective and evidence-informed practice.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Identify types of population health interventions
- Identify population health interventions that reduce health inequities
- Use a systematic process to plan and design public health interventions while integrating the best available evidence with contextual factors
- Use a systematic process to apply the best available evidence to adapt and/or implement interventions that respond to local health needs
- Use a systematic process to integrate health equity considerations when designing, adapting and/or implementing interventions
