Langue: Anglais
Lieu: Vancouver
Coût: Disponible lorsque les inscriptions seront ouvertes.
Quand: 22 au 25 avril, 2019
Cliquez ici pour plus d’informations

Although there have been thousands of published articles on FASD, there still remains limited research specifically on adolescents and adults with FASD. As individuals diagnosed with FASD continue to age, the “need to know” across a broad spectrum of areas continues to be critically important for identifying clinically relevant research questions and directions.

During this research conference on adolescents and adults with FASD, participants can expect to:

  • Connect the identified needs of community workers, healthcare providers, and families with the research community
  • Recognize emerging research findings and how they might better assist ethical policy and decision making and the development of
    integrated and collaborative approaches across systems
  • Examine practice-based evidence, projects and programs to understand the potential connections to research and potential
    longitudinal studies
  • Engage in knowledge exchange and dialogue through sessions, networking and the direct experience of individuals with FASD and families

(en anglais) PHO Grand Rounds: Developing and testing alcohol labels as a tool to inform and support safer alcohol consumption

Langue: Anglais
Lieu: 480 avenue University, 3ème étage, Toronto, ON M5G 1V2 - Salle de conférence 350 et Webinaire
Coût: Gratuit
Quand: 29 Octobre, 2019, 12h à 13h
Cliquez ici pour plus d’informations

Alcohol use is a leading risk factor for chronic disease and premature death at both provincial and national levels. Alcohol warning labels are one recommended strategy in a comprehensive approach to curbing alcohol consumption and related harms at a population level. The World Health Organization recommends health warning labels to raise consumer awareness about the negative consequences of alcohol. More than 47 countries have policies that require alcohol warning labels, however, label content and format varies across jurisdictions and evidence to inform labels is limited.

The research described in this presentation focused on the development of alcohol labels with a cancer warning, Canada’s national drinking guidelines, and standard drink information.  These labels were tested in a real-world setting to determine the extent to which evidence-informed alcohol labels are an effective tool for supporting informed and safer alcohol consumption in Canada. This session provides an overview of the alcohol label studies, highlights key results and discusses lessons learned and potential implications.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Summarize alcohol labelling policies and practices in Canada and globally
  2. Describe the results of the program of research that designed and tested an evidence-informed alcohol labelling intervention in Yukon
  3. Discuss potential implications for alcohol labelling practices and regulations in Yukon and other jurisdictions in Canada
