THCU offers Library of Sample Program Plans

The Health Communication Unit, a resource centre of the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion, now offers a Library of Sample Program Plans, based on the Ontario Public Health Standards and Guidance Documents. You can view or import them into your Online Health Program Planner. These sample plans are designed to be a starting point for public health practitioners working on similar topics, or with similar audiences. By importing a sample plan into your OHPP account, you can save time, and develop a more comprehensive, evidence-based plan for your own community. They come complete with sources of evidence, situational assessment results, objectives, indicators of success, a logic model and more.

Topics covered now include Prevention of Injury, Reproductive Health and School Health. Coming soon: Child Health, Tobacco, Alcohol and Nutrition related topics.
