Learn about resources from the six NCCs for Public Health
The purpose of this document, produced by NCCMT is to identify priorities for public health research in Canada.
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.

NCCEH offers a review of cleanup recommendations for small mercury spills. These recommendations are based on best management practices used by environmental health practitioners.
Participants in this event were representatives and stakeholders from the six National Collaborating Centres, and the Public Health Agency of Canada and key researchers, practitioners and policymakers. The conference involved discussions of the challenges and opportunities for knowledge synthesis, translation and exchange (KSTE) within public health in Canada, how to create change in programs and policies and what is considered evidence and how it can be applied. 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.
