From Andrea Bodkin – online discussion
Recently HC Link, in partnership with Health Promotion Capacity Building Services at Public Health Ontario (HPCB at PHO) offered two events on the topic on policy development.
On March 24th, Kim Bergeron from HPCB at PHO, and I hosted an online discussion on the topic of defining the problem. Around 22 people joined us for an interesting discussion on “wicked problems” and how to work with partners and the community to create a common understanding. You can read a recap blog post of the discussion on our blog here.
Last week, Kim and I collaborated again to host a peer sharing session on the same topic. The peer sharing session provided around 13 participants with an opportunity to share their experiences and ask questions related to defining the problem. You can read a recap blog post of the discussion on our blog here.
Do you have a question, idea or story to share around defining the problem when it comes to policy development? We’d love to hear from you! You can reply to this email with your thoughts, or if you’d like to contribute a blog post to continue our series on policy development, please contact me.
