Abstract:
A competent public health workforce is essential to a strong public health system. The Core Competencies for Public Health, which define the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for effective public health practice, are a key element of the Pan-Canadian Framework for Public Health Human Resources Planning (October 2005). To help strengthen the public health system, the Public Health Agency of Canada led the development of a working version of Core Competencies for Public Health in Canada. Among other uses, the core competencies can be used to develop public health curriculum at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and assess ongoing continuing education needs of public health practitioners. Through a pan-Canadian consultation process, input from the public health community, the majority being Public Health and Community Health Nurses, helped define the core competencies, as well as provide input for tools and strategies to support the use of the core competencies. This presentation will provide an overview of the consultation process. Concrete examples of how the core competencies have been used or could be used to strengthen public health practice, including curriculum development, will be highlighted. In addition, tools that have been developed to support the use of core competencies will be profiled.
