2016 Health Equity Symposium: Achieving the Vision of Health Equity

On March 21, 2016 the Mississauga Halton LHIN in partnership with Summit Housing and Outreach Program hosted a project symposium welcoming 150 participants. Using a shared learning framework, the journey of 10 Focused Implementation Sites in the Mississauga Halton LHIN were highlighted.

Some of the key learnings from the symposium included the need to understand the difference between equal and equality; the concept of, “If you don’t count people, they don’t count”; and understanding the broad spectrum of data collection that is not always immediately obvious.

Learning Videos from the 2016 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.
