Outils et processus visuels pour sensibiliser les partenaires intersectoriels aux incidences sur la santé de l’exploitation des ressources

Speaker: Dr. Raina Fumerton & Sally Western
[en anglais seulement]
It is becoming increasingly established that large extractive projects impact the social, economic, and cultural determinants of health for resource-based communities throughout rural Canada. In Northern British Columbia, the economic benefits of mining and pipeline construction can be accompanied by significant pressures on social infrastructure, economic instability, and increased crime rates. As Northern Health Authority and academic researchers work to address these impacts, we needed accessible tools to translate complexity to a broad audience of stakeholders: community leaders, policy-makers, regulatory bodies, and industry proponents. As a result, Northern Health is using Knowledge Translation tools to include these multivalent determinants of community health in Impact Assessment and policy discussion.
This webinar will discuss the process that led to the creation of our Knowledge Translation tools and how they have been used to communicate the interactions of social, economic, and cultural health determinants to stakeholders in the context of BC extractive projects. We will also describe our next steps in using and refining these Knowledge Translation tools as the topic of extractive projects and impacts to health determinants continues to expand in public health dialogues.
Dr. Raina Fumerton (Northern Health): Dr. Fumerton is a Medical Doctor and Public Health and Preventive Medicine Specialist. She has been employed as a Medical Health Officer for Northern Health since September 2014. Her interests span the broad scope of public health including health equity, the social determinants of health, communicable disease control, and better understanding the health impacts (both positive and negative) of resource development on the northern communities she serves.
Sally Western (Northern Health): Sally is a Technical Advisor in the Office of Health and Resource Development. She also serves as the Northern Health – Environment Community Health Observatory Network (ECHO) case coordinator. With an M.A. in Arctic Mining History, her research interests include the integration of Gender-Based Analysis in Health Impact Assessment and analyzing the incorporation of health and social science findings into public policy and environmental regulation.
