This webinar will explore key barriers and recommendations to Prison Needle Exchange Program (PNEP) access and enrollment. PNEP was implemented in 2018 by the Correctional Service Canada (CSC) to provide people in prisons with access to sterile injection equipment.
This webinar helps deepen attendees’ understanding of how to use responsible Artificial Intelligence, data science and mathematical solutions to improve public health surveillance and response to emerging and re-emerging infectious disease outbreaks.
This webinar will address two analyses of routine surveillance data designed to support parameterisation and construction of mechanistic mathematical models of AMR.
In this episode, we spoke with Dr Melanie Cousins from the Public Health Agency of Canada about some of her PhD work, which was recently published in an article titled “Is scientific evidence enough? Using expert opinion to fill gaps in data in antimicrobial resistance research”.
This webinar will explore evidence for treatment continuity for people who are incarcerated in British Columbia (BC) Provincial Correctional Centres.
This seminar will discuss the importance of health inequalities and how, by closely monitoring and documenting them, public health surveillance provides the foundation for informed decision-making and targeted interventions.
This webinar will provide an overview of the new Guidelines for the Economic Evaluation of Vaccination Programs in Canada produced by the National Advisory Committee on Immunizations (NACI).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Wastewater Surveillance Team Lead, will highlight the current landscape of wastewater-based surveillance in the USA, and the lessons that have been learned throughout the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and beyond.
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.
This first in a new series, this seminar provides 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. It introduces a project to establish a vision for the future of public health surveillance in Canada, 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.
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.
