Quality Indicators Framework for Chronic Disease Prevention

Quality Indicators Framework for Chronic Disease Prevention

What: Webinar
When: February 8, 2017
Time: 12:00 PM

The Ontario Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance (OCDPA) has developed an innovative indicator framework to track chronic disease risk factors – unhealthy eating, physical inactivity, high-risk alcohol consumption, tobacco use and mental illness - across Ontario.  This webinar will describe the indicator framework project with a focus on how the physical inactivity indicators can be used across work settings and practice areas.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how the OCDPA quality indicator framework encourages the viewing of risk factors in parallel across chronic disease and supports collaboration among relevant partners, with an emphasis on physical inactivity.
  • Identify opportunities of how they might use the quality indicator framework and physical inactivity indicators within their work setting and/or area of practice to increase the impact of chronic disease prevention in Ontario.
  • Provide input on how they anticipate using the indicators framework, including what factors may enable or limit their uptake of the framework.

Presenter: Elizabeth Manafo, MHSc, RD has worked in public health and nutrition practice for over 10 years. She brings together her experience in research, education and practice to promote population health and well-being across local, provincial and national settings. She also works with School of Nutrition, Ryerson University, as a Contract Lecturer educating in the areas of public health, health promotion and professional practice.

Registration closes at 12:00 pm EST on Monday February 6, 2017.
