New Prevention Policies Directory Resources for Faculty and Students of Schools of Population and Public Health

The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer has developed new resources to support the uptake and use of the Prevention Policies Directory by faculty and students of schools of population and public health for their course work on healthy public policy.

New resources for faculty support the development of lectures and/or assignments on healthy public policy, and new resources for students support completing course work, and will equip them with a tool for future careers in completing common tasks, such as developing briefing notes, completing environmental scans, and/or policy analysis and evaluation.
