Indigenous health in the Northwest Territories: Examining the Intersections of the Determinants of Health
Audrey Giles, PhD
In this presentation, I will explain the ways in which the determinants of health differ for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada and the ways in which these differences affect the health of Indigenous residents of the NWT. I will draw on examples of my almost 20 years of work with Indigenous peoples in northern Canada.
OMG! Did you just Tweet that!? Médias sociaux comme outil de communication et d’enseignement en Médecine
Alireza Jalali, MD
Médias sociaux comme outil de communication et d’enseignement en Médecine — Notre vie quotidienne est entourée d’outils de médias sociaux et les médias sociaux ont créé de nouvelles façons de communiquer et d’interagir les uns avec les autres. Les établissements d’enseignement supérieur utilisent de plus en plus les médias sociaux comme plate-forme de communication avec les étudiants, les parents, les professeurs, d’autres institutions et le public.
Cet atelier discutera du potentiel des outils de réseautage social et des comportements sécuritaires et professionnels concernant le réseautage social.
Working Together for Better Decisions: Using Evidence to Shape Health Care in Canada
CADTH – Presented by Ashley Baddeley
CADTH is Canada’s health technology management agency responsible for providing health care decision-makers with the best available evidence on medical devices, clinical interventions, and drugs. In this session, we will explore the work of health technology assessment (HTA) and management as an interdisciplinary field, with concrete examples focusing on recent work in mental health and opioid use. Students can expect to gain a better understanding of HTA and the role collaborative, interdisciplinary work plays in shaping Canada’s health care system.
The Healthcare Team Challenge: Does Grandma have HPV? An Investigation of STIs in Long Term Care Homes

David Knox, PhD, PEng
This will be an introductory workshop on engineering design for healthcare applications. We will cover the basics of designing software and/or hardware for healthcare applications. I will present two very different designs, as simple examples of inter-disciplinary collaborations that are still in process.
With a little bit of guidance, you will then do your very own wireframe-level design of a healthcare app. during the session. No software experience is required. However, you should come prepared to work in a dynamic team environment with people of different backgrounds on a real-world design project!
