Addressing Social Determinants of Health March 9th 2023

 

The goal of this course is to equip public health professionals with the information and skills they need to apply a systems thinking approach in order to:

  • Identify upstream determinants impacting specific health outcomes

  • Identify shared risk factors across multiple health outcomes

  • Identify and select particular upstream factors which they want to target

  • Describe metrics by which to measure changes in upstream health determinants

  • Identify strategies to impact those upstream determinants

  • Communicate and work with partners to identify common goals

  • Identify and implement collective funding approaches to support innovative efforts in this area

  • Assess organizational readiness or barriers to authentically engage the community in a shared risk approach

  • Identify actionable steps to impact the root causes resulting in poor health outcomes in their communities 

     

Work for the course will be completed together as a team in pairs or trios. Together, teams will take their understanding of social determinants of health to the next level as they identify actionable steps to impact the root causes resulting in poor health outcomes in their communities.
