The HEIA Community of Interest invites you to its upcoming webinar, “Integrating health into urban planning.” The webinar will describe how health is being integrated into the urban planning process in Quebec City using the Health Impact Assessment (HIA) tool.
Similar to the Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA) tool, the Health Impact Assessment (HIA) is a precise decision-support tool that enables users to consider health in the development of policies, programs, or projects, in particular outside the health sector.
The Ottawa Charter for health promotion recognizes that decisions in non-health sectors often have an impact on health and that it is therefore necessary to build healthy intersectoral public policies (WHO, 1986). The Charter states:
“The systematic assessment of the health impact of a rapidly changing environment—particularly in areas of technology, work, energy production, and urbanization—is essential and must be followed by action to ensure positive benefit to the health of the public.”
This webinar is hosted by the Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA) Community of Interest.
Oasis is a grass-roots developed program for seniors operating out of a privately owned and operated apartment building in central Kingston.
Since its inception in 2008, Oasis has rested on the philosophy that the seniors who choose to become members of Oasis have an integral role to play in determining their own programming. Oasis focuses on the social determinants of health common to all seniors, including social inclusion, physical activity, good nutrition and enhanced health and social service navigation.
Recently, Oasis has gained province-wide recognition as a successful alternative housing model for older adults who often cannot afford private residential care.
In this webinar, the presenter will:
- Review the Oasis structure and core partnerships necessary to keep it true to its mandate
- Describe upcoming research projects, conducted in partnership with faculty of the Queen’s School of Rehabilitation Therapy and focused on the expansion and evaluation of Oasis.
This webinar is hosted by the Ontario Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program.
