This first in a new series, this seminar will provide participants with an overview of public health surveillance, including foundational concepts, current gaps, and key opportunities to strengthen public health surveillance systems and the workforce behind them. A project to establish a vision for the future of public health surveillance in Canada will be introduced, including how public health stakeholders from coast to coast to coast can contribute to developing this vision.
This episode will provide an overview of the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) health economics guidelines for the evaluation of vaccination programs in Canada, and how they can be used to inform best practices and promote standardized and high-quality evidence for public health decision making.
This moderated webinar will discuss the NACI recommendations on seasonal influenza vaccine use for the 2023-2024 season. The webinar will address the role of health care providers in vaccine uptake and will include an overview of the antiviral treatment of influenza. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions.
In this episode, Dr. Michael Li spoke with us about the past, present, and future of infectious disease modelling, the different roles and responsibilities of a math modeller, and how he envisions math modelling for public health in the future.
Dr. Gwen Knight speaks with us about her research in modelling antibiotic resistance and the implications of this work for public health.
This webinar considers the current state of tuberculosis (TB) surveillance in Canada and what a robust strategic plan supported by high-quality surveillance data could achieve for TB elimination.
In this mod4PH episode, we speak to Dr. Rachael Milwid about her experiences and considerations as a math modelling researcher during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this presentation, we will describe concerns related to global and national multidrug resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) epidemiology. We will also review key steps in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Important challenges faced by Canadian public health systems in responding to MDR TB and solutions to support people who are affected will also be discussed.
To prepare for a potential increase of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) in Canada, NCCID hosted an online forum for people affected by MDR-TB, their family members, researchers, policy makers, and practitioners to discuss existing challenges to the prevention and management of MDR-TB and potential solutions.
This webinar for World TB Day 2023 informs health care providers working with Indigenous Peoples on Chapter 12 of the Canadian Tuberculosis Standards 8th Edition: Culturally Competent Tuberculosis Care for Health Care Workers and Public Health Professionals Serving Indigenous Peoples of Canada.
In the first episode, Jesse Knight speaks to NCCID’s Wendy Xie about his recent work on maximizing the impact of limited vaccine supply under different early mpox epidemic conditions using mathematical modelling.
In this presentation, we examine the successful interventions and outcomes from the Alberta and BC community antimicrobial stewardship programs. We finish with a discussion of next steps in making the case for other provincial community antimicrobial stewardship programs.
