Week 4 Webinar Summary
"Contrasting entry points for intervention in health promotion practice"
1. Health Promotion Canada's mission is to advance the practice of health promotion in Canada
Significance of framing initiatives and issues
We are good at focussing on problems rather than opportunities
Relationships must be built or engagement won't occur
One challenge is getting 'volunteers' to help build organization
3. There are 3 main entry points of interventions
1) Issues and risk factors
2) Populations and specific groups
Populations and specific groups
Issue with using the word "vulnerable"
Each entry point falls short of considering the social context of intervention and addressing the full complexity of how individuals and their social circumstances.
Ask yourself, where do we think the problem comes from?
Entry points are an 'influence' which focuses on how the problem is framed, what can be done?, how do we intervene?
5. The social context of health determinants is a core consideration for health promotion planning
"Complex ecological, multi-level, intersectional, multi-component"
Also can be considered "background noise" that we should control
Recognizing the lived experiences of people
Important to consider social agents, objects, time, space, and interplay.
Challenges faced are systematic racism, cultural differences, partnership engagement, lack of political leadership, accessibility to the target population, and academic institutional traditional population.
4. The Collective Approach is useful in health promotion as it "explicitly situates behaviours within the broader social context"
Relationships are a way to further the collective lifestyles approach
Increase knowledge base
Decrease blaming/aggravating health inequities
Rooted in sociological theory
Concerned with social practices broadly, not only health practices.
Focus on reflexivity
Always ask, 'who' is participating, 'who' is not participating and what is preventing those who can not participate from contributing.
