Canadian Best Practices Portal for Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention

The Public Health Agency of Canada launched the Canadian Best Practices
Portal for Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention at the
Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance of Canada (CDPAC) national
conference in Ottawa on November 5-8, 2006.

The Canadian Best Practices Portal is an online resource for decision
makers in practice, policy and research. It is a virtual front door
leading to an array of evidence-based best practices interventions,
systematic reviews, and resources for health promotion and chronic
disease prevention. The Population Health Approach is used as the
organizing framework, providing you with a systematic approach to
planning.

You can use the Best Practices Portal to support your work in health promotion and chronic disease prevention by

  • using the recommended resources including links, manuals and reports;
  • visiting the selected 11 systematic review sites; and
  • finding an intervention to adapt for use in your community.

Visit the Canadian Best Practices Portal today at http://www.phac.gc.ca/cbpp and bookmark it for future reference.

For more information about the Best Practices Portal please contact
Nina Jetha, Senior Program Officer, Best Practices, Public Health
Agency of Canada at (613) 952-7608 or nina_i_jetha@phac-aspc.gc.ca.

Good, better, best: Apply good evidence, make better decisions, use best practices.
