Ontario Health Promotion E-Bulletin, OHPE Bulletin 240, Volume 2002, No. 240

Introduction

i Year in Review

One of the goals of the OHPE is to reflect the variety and diversity that is health promotion in Ontario. To help us with this, we created what we fondly refer to as The Subject Matrix, which covers action areas, determinants of health, foundations of health promotion, generic strategies, priority populations, issues, and settings (for more information on the Subject Matrix, its origins and definitions, please visit the OHPE Database at http://www.ohpe.ca/ebulletin/mtxintro.html#smintro). And, at the end of every year we sit down and review all of the feature articles to see what we've covered and what we haven't.

ii 2001 Feature Articles

For those of you who joined us part way through the year, here's a complete list of articles from 2001. We would also like to extend a special thank you to all our feature writers -- the OHPE couldn't exist without this kind of support from the health promotion community.

iv Finding the Articles We Need: OHPE's Most Wanted

One of the most important functions of the year end review is to see what areas we haven't covered in-depth. From this, we develop a list of articles we would like to see in the coming year. For this year's list we have also incorporated your suggestions from the OHPE Survey.

* Cancer (e.g., linked to environment, biology and genetics, social support networks, or working conditions)
* Visible Minority (e.g., linked to income and social status, collaboration, research/ values and assumptions)
* Aging & Seniors (e.g., linked to health services/health reform)
* Income and Social Status (e.g., linked to a population of interest, strategy or setting)
* Healthy child development
* Mental health (e.g., in the workplace post traumatic stress disorders or stress management)

And here is our request of you, faithful readers: please let us know if you are interested in writing a feature article on any of the above topics, or have suggestions of your own. Our full submission guidelines are available from [email protected] or [email protected]
