THCU Health Promotion Toolkit Webinars, January 2010

Online/Teleconference
January 7, 12, 13, 25, 2010

Expand your health promotion toolkit for any health issue.

These introductory-level webinars cover the basics of THCU's recommended step model.

In each of our 75 minute lecture-style webinars,

  • we begin with an overview of key concepts and terms,
  • then briefly address the "why" and "how" of each step,
  • then bring the most challenging steps to life with examples,
  • and to close, identify quality sources of more information, tools and describe THCU's customized consultation services.

In each of our 90 minute interactive application webinars,

  • we begin with a brief review of the relevant step-model,
  • then bring the most challenging steps to life through interactive exercises and small group discussions,
  • then discuss "on the job" challenges identified by participants, and to close,
  • orient participants to opportunities for further discussion on THCU's blog and further assistance through our consultation service.

We recommend these sessions for:

  • anyone new to health promotion seeking definitions, tools, resources and organized approaches to practice,
  • front line staff that need to choose, plan, implement and evaluate health promotion programs and services, and
  • managers or team leaders who train or advise staff or volunteers about theory and evidence-informed processes.

Note: Due to funding restrictions, registration priority will be given to health promoters currently working with Ontario-focused organizations. All others will be placed on a waiting list and notified if space becomes available. If you have a question about your eligibility for this workshop, please contact us at hc.unit@utoronto.ca or (416) 978-0522.
