Apply to be a health equity practice site, National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health

Deadline April 13, 2018
 
Dear colleague,
 
The National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (NCCDH, http://www.nccdh.ca/) is seeking public health departments to partner in a two-year project (project overview: http://nccdh.ca/images/uploads/comments/NCCDH_Organizational_Capacity_Pr...) to increase effective organizational capacity for health equity-oriented action. The project will combine an international learning circle and three public health departments acting as practice sites. This is a great opportunity for your organization to gain know-how, staff skill and knowledge.

Please consider applying (site expectations: http://nccdh.ca/images/uploads/comments/NCCDH_Organizational_Capacity_Pr...).
 
Project goal: Learn what frameworks, strategies and organizational conditions are most useful and effective to develop and sustain such capacity in the Canadian public health context.
 
Process: Sites will participate in a learning circle that combines evidence appraisal, expert opinion, practice-based innovation and collaborative learning. Each site will design and implement a project to improve health equity action that fits with your organization’s priorities and fiscal allocations.
 
Organizational benefits:

  • Support from the NCCDH for the implementation of a concrete, time-limited organizational change project with actionable steps
  • Access to state-of-the-art expertise, current evidence and awareness of emerging innovations
  • Enhanced, mutually supporting professional networks

New application deadline: April 13, 2018.
