All day
Knowledge-Sharing Workshop on LGBTQ Health in the Penthouse at Northwood at the Harbour, Halifax
Theme: developing culturally competent primary health assessment approaches for LGBTQ populations in Nova Scotia
This full-day workshop will feature panel presentations, facilitated discussion sessions, and a keynote address by Anna Travers, Executive Director of Rainbow Health Ontario.
This event is focused on sharing the findings of our research on LGBTQ health in Nova Scotia with key decision-makers and knowledge-users to inform the process of developing primary health priorities and consensus on:
1) what are the salient primary health issues to be measured
2) how best to measure these to help inform primary health practices and responses, and
3) how to develop culturally competent baseline primary health assessment approaches and tools, with, for and by the LGBTQ communities in Nova Scotia.
The outcomes of this knowledge-sharing workshop will be used to develop and pilot the LGBTQ primary health assessment approaches and tools.
This knowledge-sharing workshop is open to policy makers, public and primary health officials, health researchers, community organizations and LGBTQ community members. There is no registration fee and space is limited so we encourage you to RSVP as soon as possible. To RSVP or for more information, please contact Emily Colpitts at emily.colpitts@dal.ca or Dr. Jacqueline Gahagan at jacqueline.gahagan@dal.ca.
