PHO Rounds: Epidemiology - Addressing Gaps in Child and Youth Health Surveillance in Ontario
Thursday, September 21, 2017 12:00 pm to 01:00 pm
Venue: By Webinar Only
Health Promotion
City: Toronto
Type: PHO Rounds: Epidemiology
Format: Webinar

Note: This is an open invitation, and may be forwarded to interested parties.

In February 2017, the Children Count Locally Driven Collaborative Project team released the findings of our year-long study examining child and youth health surveillance gaps in Ontario. Building on recommendations from the report, in this session we will examine the potential impact of two interventions to improve Ontario’s ability to monitor child and youth health. First is the creation of a multi-sectoral Provincial Task Force, engaging key stakeholders to identify next steps in improving assessment and surveillance methods. The second proposed intervention is a 2-year pilot project to establish a partnership model between public health units and school boards, leveraging School Climate Surveys to collaboratively fill key data gaps on school-aged child health.

Presenter: Sophia Wenzel
Sophia Wenzel is a Health Promotion Planner at Thunder Bay District Health Unit. Jessica Deming is an Epidemiologist at Region of Waterloo Public Health and Emergency Services. They are presenting today on behalf of the Children Count Locally Driven Collaborative Project (LDCP) team.
