The “Renewal of Public Health Systems” (RePHS) project  examined the implementation of the Ontario Public Health Standards and the Core Functions framework in BC using two programs as exemplar cases - chronic disease prevention (CDP) and sexually transmitted infection prevention (STIP).  Research questions included: (1) What factors/contexts influenced or affected the implementation of the CDP and STIP programs and activities? and, (2) What have been the impacts/effects of these CDP and STIP programs and activities on staff, the organization, the populations served, other organizations, and communities? This first in a series of webinars will: 1) present the project history and methods, and, 2) examine how the integrated knowledge translation process was enacted throughout the five year project in ON through a panel presentation.
