From brainstorming to action: implementing mitigation strategies for HEIA, Health Equity Impact Assessment Community of Interest

July 26, 2017

12:00 - 12:30 pm

The Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA) Community of Interest invites you to a webinar presented by Andrea Bodkin of Health Nexus:

"During the Mitigation step of Ontario's Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA), we identify strategies to minimize the negative impacts of health inequities and maximize the positive. This step is often seen as the favourite one: we get to identify what actions we are going to take! However, people can get stuck on this step. How do we identify potential actions? How do we know which ones to select? How do we ensure that our mitigation strategies are practical and will have the effects that we want? In this webinar, Andrea Bodkin will describe three simple steps to navigate the Mitigation step of the HEIA template. You’ll leave the webinar with concrete ideas on how to generate, identify and implement mitigation strategies."
