KNOWLEDGE & SKILLS TRAINING
We offer training workshops curated for individuals and/or organizations interested in being up-to-date on current health policy issues in Canada and globally. We offer a one day, three-day, one-week, and months long simulation-based, face-to-face, and online workshops depending on the time demands of the users
KNOWLEDGE & SKILLS TRAINING:
Workshop #1: Major Themes in Health Policy Simulation
We believe that in order for you to fully understand the health policy issues and ways to deal with it, you have to immerse yourself in the role of the decision-makers dedicated to solving health policy issues locally and globally. You will be assigned the role of a specific type of decision-maker (e.g., Minister of Health) and asked to play the role in different simulations. We work closely with our clients to determine precisely what their knowledge needs are. We then provide customized workshops based on the health topics that are of importance for the user and organization (e.g., Social determinants of Health, Pharmacare, Cannabis & Health, etc.).
Workshop #2: Professional Competency Training
- Name, department and organization name and contact information of person requesting the session
- Desired objectives/outcomes.
- Length of workshop desired (e.g., three hours, one-day, one week)
- Proposed date, time and location of workshop or presentation
- Target audience/participants – who are they and how many are expected?
All our workshops include two introductory sessions focused around:
What is Health Policy?
Introduction into what policies are, examining ways of defining policy analysis, and examining why health policy matters?
