"Public Health Surveillance: Health In-formation in Ontario"

Thursday, September 20th,
Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Room D528,
12:30 to 1:30 pm.

This seminar presents research into public health surveillance practice in Ontario, focusing specifically on the implementation of the integrated Public Health Information System (iPHIS). iPHIS, it turns out, is much more than a tool which aids public health workers with case management and epidemiology. Indeed, iPHIS has changed the very nature of public health work. This seminar discusses some of those changes, and considers their implications for public health, and for health itself.

Everyone welcome!
