Quality Indicators Framework for Chronic Disease Prevention

What: Webinar
When: February 8, 2017
Time: 12:00 pm

The Ontario Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance (OCDPA) has developed an innovative indicator framework to track chronic disease risk factors – unhealthy eating, physical inactivity, high-risk alcohol consumption, tobacco use and mental illness – across Ontario.  This webinar will describe the indicator framework project with a focus on how the physical inactivity indicators can be used across work settings and practice areas.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how the OCDPA quality indicator framework encourages the viewing of risk factors in parallel across chronic disease and supports collaboration among relevant partners, with an emphasis on physical inactivity.
  • Identify opportunities of how they might use the quality indicator framework and physical inactivity indicators within their work setting and/or area of practice to increase the impact of chronic disease prevention in Ontario.
  • Provide input on how they anticipate using the indicators framework, including what factors may enable or limit their uptake of the framework.
