The public health sector plays a key role in population health protection and emergency management. Collaboration is important in emergency management and increasingly seen as essential for resilient health systems. For public health agencies, collaboration and partnership-building for emergency management may involve health system and non-health system partners, as well as the community.

This seminar aims to exchange knowledge on:

  • emerging research,
  • successful practices in health emergency management collaboration, and
  • building system resilience in the face of increasing emergencies.

Available by webinar, this half-day offering will include a keynote speaker, an applied public health research presentation and examples of collaboration from the provincial and local levels.

Topics Include:

  • What makes the public health system resilient? Findings from the development of a public health emergency preparedness framework for Canada
  • Unpacking the Elements that Support Collaboration in Public Health Emergency Preparedness
  • Mechanisms for promoting collaboration in Ontario
  • Collaboration in practice – sharing experiences from Public Health Colleagues with established stakeholder communities.
