Resources from the NCCs for Public Health

The six National Collaborating Centres for Public Health translate existing knowledge to produce and exchange relevant, accessible, and evidence-informed products with researchers, practitioners, and policymakers. 

Each NCC has its own website that links to resources and upcoming knowledge exchange opportunities. These may include presentations, evidence reviews, reports, inventories of resources, annotated bibliographies,fact sheets, summaries, electronic resources, workshops, courses, etc. To learn more, visit the links below:

The Report of The Adult Working Group, part of the Canadian Council of Learning, provides information on consultations in Vancouver, Regina, Toronto, Montreal and Nova Scotia in 2006- 2007. The consultations with individuals with low literacy skills, immigrants, and refugees and service providers who work with these groups were intended to identify themes, gaps, and needs related to health and learning among these target groups. The feedback was used by the Adult Working Group to develop a list of research and knowledge dissemination and mobilization priorities to better address health literacy issues experienced by vulnerable individuals in Canada.

This report includes detailed overviews on the presentations and discussions that took place at the conference and includes ideas on how to increase and improve KSTE.

A scan of the literature was conducted to answer the research question, “Does family literacy have a measurable outcome impact on health?” The purpose of the scan was to identify resources and literature for the development of a training module on family literacy and health, a joint venture of the NCCDH and the Centre for Family Literacy (Edmonton, AB). The findings indicate limited research on the topic has been conducted in Canada, and therefore most of the resources described in the report are from the United States.
