Reflecting on the Uniqueness of Public Health Nursing Practice

  • Online Module

Teaching Strategy Description:

New hires are asked to think about what public health practice includes, how it differs from acute care and to think of the values they think are important in public health practice.  They are then asked to read key documents (Ottawa Charter, Jakarta Declaration, Ontario Public Health Standards, the Toronto Public Health (TPH) Mission statement) and compare their reflection with what they learned. New hires review TPH programs and services and explain how they affect them at a personal, school or community level.
