Six essential roles of health promotion research

The Atlantic Canada experience
Over the past 20 years, the federal government and universities across Canada have directed resources towards the development of university-based health promotion research centres.  Researchers at health promotion research centres in Canada have produced peer-reviewed papers and policy documents based on their work, but no publications have emerged that focus on the specific roles of the health promotion research centres themselves. The purpose of this paper is to propose a framework, based on an in-depth examination of one centre, to help identify the unique roles of health promotion research centres and to clarify the value they add to promoting health and advancing university goals. Considering the shifting federal discourse on health promotion over time and the vulnerability of social and health sciences to changes in research funding priorities, health promotion research centres in Canada and elsewhere may need to articulate their unique roles and contributions in order to maintain a critical focus on health promotion research. The authors briefly describe the Atlantic Health Promotion Research Centre (AHPRC), propose a framework that illustrates six essential roles of health promotion research centres and describe the policy contexts and challenges of health promotion research centres. The analysis of research and knowledge translation activities over 15 years at AHPRC sheds light on the roles that health promotion research centres play in applied research. The conclusion raises questions regarding the value of university-based research centres and challenges to their sustainability.

Institut national de santé publique du Québec - Plan stratégique 2009-2014

Ce plan stratégique trace le profil des orientations que l'Institut national de santé publique du Québec entend mettre de l'avant au cours des cinq prochaines années afin d'assurer pleinement son rôle. Il tient à la fois compte des défis soulevés par la démarche d'autoévaluation, des résultats des sondages réalisés auprès du personnel et des partenaires et clients, des recommandations des auditeurs externes et du Vérificateur général du Québec, et de l'analyse du contexte externe dans lequel évolue l'Institut. Il est aussi le fruit des réflexions du conseil d'administration, du comité de direction et de l'ensemble des gestionnaires de l'Institut. Les choix stratégiques qui y sont définis constituent le point de départ d'une plus vaste réflexion qui permettra, sous l'angle de l'amélioration globale de notre performance, de préciser plus encore les thèmes scientifiques à mettre de l'avant et les modèles d'interactions à développer avec les différents partenaires, ce qui donnera lieu à une révision de certaines façons de faire.

Model OHS legislation

The Australian Government has identified occupational health and safety (OHS) as a priority area for reform. One of the key elements of the OHS reform agenda is harmonisation – moving towards one set of national OHS laws. The harmonisation of OHS legislation aims to reduce the incidence of workplace death, injury and disease right across Australia.
Currently all states and territories are responsible for making and enforcing their own OHS laws. Although these draw on a similar approach for regulating workplaces, there are some differences in the application and detail of the laws. Safe Work Australia is responsible for developing national model OHS legislation. The model legislation will consist of a principal OHS Act, supported by model regulations and model codes of practice that can be readily adopted around Australia. This requires each state and territory to pass their own laws that mirror the model OHS laws and adopt them by December 2011.
