Results-Based Accountability for Healthy Communities Partnerships, Healthy Communities Consortium

Toronto, Ontario
October 18, 2010

8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Mandarin Ballroom, Toronto Metropolitan Hotel -108 Chestnut St.

Results-Based Accountability (RBA) is a disciplined way of thinking and taking action that communities can use to improve the lives of all residents.  It is a transparent process that uses trend data and community engagement to set priorities that are right for your community. RBA has proven to be a valuable tool for community mobilization where everyone gets a voice and community assets are utilized and developed.

Using clear plain language, the framework presents step by step methods for communities to turn around quality of life conditions such as health, safety, and clean environment and step by step methods for agencies to improve services for their clients. 

This workshop is specifically designed for current or potential members of Healthy Communities Partnerships and Public Health Unit Managers.

After participating in this one-day workshop you will be able to:

  • Apply the Results Based Accountability Framework to identify local priorities
  • Tailor what you do to what you intend to achieve
  • Get a better understanding of what local data is telling you
  • Choose indicators in a sea of data
  • Use results and outcomes to drive decision-making and budgeting
  • Use baseline measures to define success or failure
