In this webinar, the NCCHPP's Val Morrison will seek to equip participants with new tools and approaches to better approach wicked problems in their practice.

For a deeper definition of what a wicked problem is, consult the document Wicked Problems and Public Policy.

NCC for Infectious Diseases (NCCID)
On January 31 and February 1, 2018, over 85 people gathered in Winnipeg to share innovative ideas and approaches at a Knowledge Exchange Forum: Towards Elimination of Tuberculosis (TB) in Northern Indigenous Communities. The forum was a partnership of the NCCs for Infectious Diseases, Aboriginal Health, Determinants of Health and Healthy Public Policy. The legacy of Indian Hospitals, the colonial policies for treating Indigenous peoples from northern communities with TB, and the profound stories shared by Indigenous people with lived experiences set the context. TB nurses and program leaders from northern Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, as well as the four Inuit regions and Indigenous Health Authorities contributed to a dynamic event. Proceedings and materials from the meeting will be available for sharing widely by late spring.
