Workshop - Public policy and wicked problems: How can we approach them? - JASP 2014
On Monday November 24, Val Morrison hosted a half-day long workshop entitled "Public policy and wicked problems: How can we approach them?" at the JASP 2014, in Québec City.
September 2014.  Description.
.

The NCCHPP participated in the Journées annuelles de santé publique (JASP - Québec's Annual Public Health Days), to be held in Québec City from November 24 to 26, 2014.

On Monday November 24, Val Morrison hosted a workshop entitled "Public policy and wicked problems: How can we approach them?"

This 3-hour workshop presented the characteristics of wicked problems and, using practical exercises, the ways to address them. It was particularly aimed at professionals who work in the public health field and those who are called on to intervene and make decisions in the policy realm. The workshop helped participants to better understand the different types of problems encountered in healthy public policy and to sharpen their ideas about possible modes of resolution for wicked problems.
