Presenter:        Val Morrison, Research Officer, NCCHPP


This webinar was part of the Knowledge Translation in Public Health Medicine series offered by the National Collaborating Centres for Public Health in partnership with the Public Health Physicians of Canada.

Description

This webinar was built on a foundation of work on wicked problems by presenting practical tools and approaches for working more effectively to address them.

Because of these problems' complexity and intractability, it is folly to suggest that any one or two tools can be used to eradicate them. However, there are some elements that are promising for initiating work on wicked problems. These include collaboration, dialogue and shared understanding.

This webinar sought to equip participants with new tools and approaches to better incorporate these elements into their work. By the end of the workshop, participants were able to come away with new ideas about how to approach wicked problems.

Objectives:

By participating in this webinar, participants were able to:

1. Differentiate different practical approaches to addressing wicked problems. 

2. Effectively distinguish between discussion, debate, and dialogue.

3. Increase their capacity to act on wicked problems in public health.
