2015 Health Equity Symposium
The Mississauga Halton LHIN hosted its second annual Health Equity Symposium on March 23, 2015. The focus of the symposium was to provide a better understanding around the why, how and what behind collecting socio-demographic client data. Keynote speaker Dr. Kwame McKenzie – an international expert from the Wellesley Institute and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health – shared insight into the importance of data collection.
Socio-Demographic Data Collection: Learning Videos from the 2015 Symposium
The following videos have been developed as an educational tool to support learning around the importance of socio-demographic data collection and its connection to improved outcomes and quality care for our residents.
We encourage you to watch the videos to build on your knowledge, and for our health service providers, think about how socio-demographic data can inform program development and outreach to marginalized groups.
