Learn and share.
Please explore the following section of this website to familiarize yourself with other important reports, frameworks and competency guidelines that complement the BC Core Competencies Project and support public health renewal.
A review of these resources will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the public health core competency work throughout Canada, including core competencies for specific public health sub-disciplines (eg. epidemiologists, public health inspectors, community health nurses, etc.)
Return to this section of the website to keep up to date with continuing work in core competency development and public health workforce renewal. This section of the website is intended to be a space of knowledge transfer and exchange. It is hoped that this introductory selection of core competency documents will expand over time with increasing investment, collaborative work and information sharing in the field of public health core competency development.
Explore the ‘Foundational Documents’ in the ‘Resource Connections’ drop-down menu to view the work that has helped to frame and contextualize the BC Core Competencies Project. Key documents to highlight that have not been previously mentioned include:
