About the webinar
In this webinar, we will provide an overview of the services and tools offered by the Health Promotion Capacity Building (HPCB) team at PHO. We will describe how these can be leveraged to meet the Ontario Public Health Standards and other emerging community and government health promotion and chronic disease prevention priorities.
This webinar is designed for anyone working in the field of health promotion, chronic disease and injury prevention in Ontario including health units, community health centres, NGO’s and others.
Each year our field support team connects with thousands of practitioners working in Ontario’s public health system. Through resources, consultations and training we develop capacity related to program planning and evaluation, health communication, policy development and alcohol policy. Examples of specific topics we cover include:
-conducting situational/needs assessments
-developing logic models
-developing SMART objectives
-choosing and applying indicators of success
-developing evaluation plans
-designing or adapting social marketing campaigns
-designing evaluation plans
-understanding municipal decision makers
-developing local by-laws
We work closely with other Ontario Health Promotion Resource Centres to meet the needs of our clients.
The health promotion capacity building team is part of the Health Promotion, Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention (HPCDIP) Department. We support Ontario’s public health system, community health care intermediaries and partner ministries. We assist our clients to plan, conduct, and evaluate evidence-based interventions that promote health and prevent chronic disease and injury. Our wide range of services and resources are available in both official languages.
