The role of public health working with shelters serving people experiencing houselessness: A rapid scoping review
This session will provide an overview of a rapid scoping review on the role of public health working with shelters serving people experiencing houselessness completed in 2022 by the National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT) in collaboration with the National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCCID). The review identified examples of public health collaborating with shelters to deliver public health programs and services, or to support shelter staff on public health topics. NCCID used the review in an Institute that explored opportunities to improve communications and programming that work for shelter clients and shelter staff. Join us to learn more about the results of this rapid scoping review, and to discuss possibilities for increased collaboration among public health and shelters.
