This is the third in a four-part webinar series exploring current Canadian issues associated with equity-integrated population health status reporting, equity indicators, local data and health equity outcomes. The focus is on data to drive community action to improve health equity. Each webinar features special guests to showcase the diversity of strategies and approaches being undertaken across Canada.

This webinar will explore “accreditation” and health equity from two different perspectives. We will learn about:

  • How health equity has been integrated into the standards of the U.S. Public Health Accreditation Board and what has been learned during the first 3 years of implementation.
  • The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority’s (WRHA) experience participating in an accreditation process focused on their “Population Health and Wellness Standard” as part of their health equity work.

The presenters will be asked to reflect on the role of quality improvement and accreditation processes to support action on health inequity.

Presenters:

  • Robin Wilcox, Chief Program Officer, Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB)
  • Sharon Kuropatwa, Community Area Director and Director for Housing, Supports and Services Integration, Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA)
  • Jo-Ann Julien, Health Planning and Program Specialist, Public Health Services, County of San Diego Health & Human Services Agency

Faciliators:

  • Lesley Dyck, NCCDH knowledge translation specialist
  • Dianne Oickle, NCCDH knowledge translation specialist
