This webinar will present findings from a research study that examined the development and implementation of social determinant of health public health nurse (SDOH PHN) positions across Ontario’s 36 public health agencies. These new positions were funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (Ontario) to enhance organizational capacity for action on the SDOH and health equity.

The role of leadership in the implementation of the SDH PHN positions and in an organization’s health equity work more broadly will also be discussed. The supports and barriers to implementing equity-focused positions to improve public health organization capacity to act on SDH and advance health equity will be highlighted as well as recommendations for policy, practice, education and research.

This webinar will:

o enhance your understanding of the supports and barriers for the implementation of health equity positions in Ontario and the relevance to your organization
o facilitate a discussion about the role of leadership in supporting health equity action
o discuss the importance of provincial level guidance for local action
o identify key actions for building the capacity for public health organizations to act on the social determinants of health and health equity

The webinar will be of interest to practitioners, managers, decision-makers and researchers interested in organizational and systems capacity for public health action on the social determinants of health and health equity.
