Psychosocial Impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic

Les impacts psychosociaux de la pandémie de COVID-19 : un cadre de référence issu des apprentissages tirés des catastrophes antérieures au Canada 

February @ 12-1PM PST
Speaker: Mélissa Généreux
Cost: FREE

There is no doubt that mental health challenges posed by disasters will increase due to climate, demographic and social changes. This presentation details findings from Canadian-led studies on the psychosocial impacts resulting from communities who experienced large-scale disasters in Canada. Such traumatic events include the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2019 Quebec spring floods, the 2016 Fort McMurray wildfires, and the 2013 Lac-Mégantic train derailment. There are links between observed psychosocial impacts and recovery during these recent disasters, with learnings that could be applied to the COVID-19 pandemic that could promote individual and community resilience following disasters. This session will be relevant to environmental and public health professionals in health prevention and health promotion roles.

Presenter: Mélissa Généreux holds a doctorate in medicine, a master's degree in public health and a specialization in community medicine from the University of Montreal. After having been appointed as Director of Public Health for six years in the Estrie region, she now acts as a medical adviser both at the regional and provincial level in Quebec. She has developed an expertise in the field of disaster management and psychosocial recovery through her strong involvement during the Lac-Mégantic rail tragedy in 2013 that destroyed a large part of the downtown area, both as a researcher and as a decision-maker, as well as through her support brought to public health authorities as a consultant during the 2016 Fort McMurray fires in Alberta and the 2017 and 2019 spring floods in Quebec. As a member of the WHO Health Emergency and Disaster Risk Management Framework Research Network (TPRN), she has developed a strong international network and has contributed to several knowledge creation and transition activities in the field of disaster risk reduction (e.g. WHO expert meeting, workshops, conferences, scientific papers, reports, book chapters). She is currently leading two studies, one on the sociosanitary consequences during and after the 2019 spring floods in Quebec, and another on the psychological and behavioral response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Canada’s New Impact Assessment Act

Canada’s New Impact Assessment Act: Opportunities for Intersectoral Action in Public Health

February 24th @ 12-1PM PST
Speaker: Jennifer Ann Brown & Dr. Candace I. J. Nykiforuk
Cost: FREE

Canada’s Impact Assessment Act provides new opportunities for public health practitioners, researchers, and policy makers working to improve population health equity for many marginalized and vulnerable populations. Impact assessments are federal review processes conducted for major natural resource developments and large infrastructure projects such as mines, oil and gas fields, or pipelines. Typically located in more rural and remote regions of the country, major projects can provide income, employment, and other benefits for nearby communities. At the same time, major projects may pose risks to community health and wellbeing, including exposure to pollution and loss of ecosystem services, stress on community infrastructure and food and water security, and interfering with land-based cultural practices.

Public health involvement in impact assessments can help to identify and mitigate the risks to community health from major projects. For example, the sector’s input can help ensure that federal decision-makers have appropriate information about possible direct health impacts and impacts on the social, economic, and environmental determinants of health.

This webinar will focus on intersectoral opportunities for public health involvement during the 180-day planning period at the beginning of every new impact assessment for a major project, presenting best practices identified through a federally funded systematic realist review of 185 reports from peer-reviewed and gray literature.

Jennifer Ann Brown is a doctoral candidate at the School of Public Health, University of Alberta studying population health equity in impact assessments, recognized with research scholarships from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (2017-2020) and Alberta Innovates (2020-2022). She has presented her work on impact assessment in forums such as the International Congress on Circumpolar Health, Arctic Science Summit Week, and the International Association for Impact Assessment. She has also co-authored several articles on healthy public policy in journals such as Social Science & Medicine, Environmental Science & Policy, and Preventive Medicine Reports.

Candace I. J. Nykiforuk is a Professor and Director of the Centre for Healthy Communities in the School of Public Health, University of Alberta, and is part of the Core Committee for Alberta Health Services’ Population, Public and Indigenous Health Strategic Clinical Network. She is a member of the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists (2016-2023), and leads several multi-jurisdictional collaborations on healthy public policy research, with extensive experience engaging target research users to co-create impactful research products.
