Community Profiling, Community Development and Health: Lessons from Quebec

This free seminar with Paul Morin from Université de Sherbrooke, Quebec, will outline lessons from Quebec's Estrie Observatory for Community Development (Observatoire estrien du développement des communautés), which uses community development methods to tackle social determinants of health. 

The Observatory has used the Estrie Community Dashboard (Tableau de bord des communautés de l'Estrie - TBCE). The TBCE is a participative and cross-sectoral approach to the production of community profiles. It includes their sociodemographic, economic, social and health characteristics, and a qualitative assessment of their potential for development. It is based on the notion that community development is more likely to succeed if it relies on collective intelligence, with qualitative and quantitative knowledge of strengths, weaknesses, and potential.

Bruce Whyte from Glasgow Centre for Population Health will be giving a response as part of the seminar.

The seminar takes place on the 6th Mar 2013, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM.  Advance Bookings (free) are required and can be made here. The seminar is already well-subscribed, however more places have recently been made available.
