Webinar on Tool for Assessing the Effects of Local Intersectoral Action 

25 May, 14h-15h (UCT), 9h-10h (ET)

 

The Tool for Assessing the Effects of Local Intersectoral Action is for those involved in intersectoral projects targeting tangible changes in living environments. It allows health promotion practitioners to document their action. The tool is an interactive web-based training and practice support platform for managers and practitioners of intersectoral action. By allowing reflection on actions, it is suitable for both evaluating and supporting the management of the action.

Join Angèle Bilodeau, from the School of Public Health at the University of Montreal, Marie-Pier St-Louis and Gillian Kranias, from the Canada Research Chair in Community Approaches and Health Inequalities (CACIS) for an introduction to this tool. Liane Comeau, IUHPE Executive Director and Margaret McLoone, Lecturer in Health Sciences and Health Promotion in Sligo Institute of Technology will be hosting this event.

The tool helps to shed light on how health promotion interventions are carried out in social development or community settings to reduce health inequalities and improve living conditions (housing, education, food systems, income etc).  It therefore aligns with the Health Promotion Core Competencies underlying the IUHPE Accreditation System, particularly the competency to “Enable change” by building capacity for health promoting action through collaborative work across sectors.  

Participating in this webinar is a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activity and therefore can contribute to credit hours required for re-registration as an IUHPE Registered Health Promotion Practitioner.

To make the webinar more interactive, we invite you to describe, in one sentence, an intersectoral project to improve living environments that you know or have worked on. You can send us your contribution while registering.
