Evening Rounds: Let’s Get Digital

Evening Rounds is back! Mark Gilbert and Devon Haag from the BCCDC Online Sexual Health Services Team will present Let’s Get Digital: Improving Public Health through an Online Sexual Health Service.

As the health care system increasingly turns to digital strategies and innovations for improving public health, it’s important to understand the effectiveness of these new approaches. Evaluations of online and mobile health interventions are scant, particularly within sexual health literature.

This presentation will use GetCheckedOnline, BC’s online testing service for sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections, as a case study to examine ways to assess the impacts of digital public health interventions.

SCHEDULE:

Doors open 5:30 p.m. Come have a snack, say hello, get comfortable.

Presentation begins at 6:00 p.m. There will be time for questions and discussion after, and we’ll wrap up at 7:00!

The question I like to ask health care employees is ‘Who is this for?’ and ‘Do we have the right people at the table?’ As a health care employee, I see how easy it is to fall into doing for, rather than doing with patients. The voices of the patient, family and caregiver are essential to ensure the patient is central to the direction and focus of the work being done.
