Progressive pedagogy: health equity in all policies
Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
We invite – with an open call for abstracts – presentations that critically examine teaching about the intersection of health equity and policies. This includes public health and healthcare policies as well as policies whose primary focus is not health (e.g., policies involving economics, energy, environment, agriculture, housing, transportation, education, the legal system, etc).
Abstracts on teaching both in and outside of academic settings, including trainings within public health agencies, other agencies that implement policies, and also oriented to policymakers, as well as across the spectrum of social and economic groups, are encouraged.
Some possible topic might include:
a) Trainings that critically teach about promoting health equity through policy change, including but not limited to public health policy
b) Courses based in non-public health disciplines (e.g., urban planning, social work, mental health, sociology, economics, law) that are branching out to include health impacts – and implications – of policies, with attention to health equity.
c) Teaching about how healthcare policies address (or fail to address) health equity
d) Teaching about conducting health equity impact assessments
e) Introductory courses that teach about the concepts of “Health in All Policies,” approaches to its implementation (e.g., involving intersectoral work, shared health governance, “joined-up” policies), and how to build in goals regarding health equity
We welcome any other abstracts that are consistent with the theme of the session.
Session Objectives: Describe examples of courses and other pedagogical activities that teach about the concepts of "health equity in all policies" and how to implement these policies.
