2004-350

Please note that our list of educational opportunities is not comprehensive. Unfortunately, there is no way for us to include all the programs that would be useful for health promoters; OHPE simply doesn't have the resources to be comprehensive for a field this diverse.



As a follow up, please read our Letters to the Editors columns for February (http://www.ohpe.ca/ebulletin/ViewFeatures.cfm?ISSUE_ID=351)

and March (http://www.ohpe.ca/ebulletin/ViewFeatures.cfm?ISSUE_ID=353) in which we publish additional resources and points of view from OHPE readers.

Here are two quick corrections to job postings from last week's issue:

* the Health Educator job posting from Toronto Public Health is temporary, not salaried (http://www.ohpe.ca/ebulletin/Job.cfm?ID=1187&ROWNUMBER=1&Sort=JobPosting... =CURRENT)

* the deadline for the Bilingual Workplace Health and Wellness Specialist, Connex Health Consulting, is March 5 (http://www.ohpe.ca/ebulletin/Job.cfm?ID=1184&ROWNUMBER=1&Sort=JobPosting... =CURRENT)



This week's feature is a discussion of and resource for health promotion education and training. Kevin Churchill and Alison Stirling collaborated on this article. In the introduction, they ask, "So how can we "learn" health promotion? What are the skills needed? Can anyone practice health promotion? Where do we learn how to become health promoters? The answers may be as diverse as the individuals that practice health promotion."



If you have a resource or point of view to add to this article, let us know by writing to editor@ohpe.ca. More information on our Letters to the Editor column can be found in our submission guidelines (http://www.ohpe.ca/ebulletin/submit.html). In particular, we are interested in adding to our list of Canadian undergraduate, graduate and summer school programs profiled in OHPE 350.2.

2004 Health Services Research Advancement Award

Sections: 

The Canadian Health Services Research Foundation encourages nominations of a wide scope of people for the 2004 Health Services Research Advancement Award. We are looking for nominations of decision makers who fund health services research, work in partnership with health services researchers, or frequently use research to make evidence-based decisions. We also welcome the nomination of researchers who are doing health services research, communicating research well, and teaching about health services research or advocating for it.



We want to recognize the people who are involved with health services research in many different ways - and not necessarily in traditional ways.



Please submit a nomination to http://www.chsrf.ca/funding_opportunities/hsraa/pdf/nform_e.pdf by 5:00 p.m., March 31, 2004 to the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation. The winner will be awarded $10,000 to use for the advancement of health services research.



For more information on the 2004 Health Services Research Advancement Award please go to the CHSRF web site at http://www.chsrf.ca.

New Report: Improving the Health of Canadians 2004

Sections: 

This new report synthesizes a wide range of evidence on the determinants of health, including previously unpublished research commissioned by CPHI. This new report is intended to build awareness of population health issues, create opportunities for knowledge exchange and generate policy debate and dialogue.



The report focuses on four themes: income and health, early childhood

development, Aboriginal Peoples' health, and obesity. These themes reflect four different perspectives on population health: core determinants of health, the life course, the experience of different population groups, and the variety of health conditions that exist. For each theme, the report summarizes the best available evidence on health determinants, discusses the policy experience and identifies gaps in knowledge.



The CPHI is a program of the Canadian Institute for Health Information

(CIHI). The report is available for downloading free of charge from

This collaboration is a result of the combination of two initiatives. Alison was working on updating OPC's 1994 publication on health promotion training and OHPE Bulletins on the topic from 1998; Kevin was gathering information on the same subject for Health Promotion Ontario to post on the careers section of the ALPHA web site.
