Although public health has long played a role in tackling the social determinants of health, interest is growing rapidly within health service organizations. This interest is driven in part by a greater awareness of the relationship between social deprivation and health service use, and that social determinants are likely at the root of inequities in health. Existing research is focused on evaluating interventions in clinical spaces. Dr. Pinto will explore the potential for collaboration between public health and health care services. Work in this area can build on “Patients First” and increasing contact between local public health and Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs).
