Le présent courriel d’Infirmières et Infirmiers en santé communautaire du Canada (IISCC) vise à vous annoncer une grande nouvelle pour le milieu de la santé publique au pays. L’Agence de la santé publique du Canada a mandaté les Centres de collaboration nationale en santé publique (CCNSP) pour travailler avec le milieu de la santé publique du Canada à la mise à jour des énoncés de compétences essentielles en santé publique au Canada qui remontent à 2008.
Pourquoi le projet est-il important?
Soulignons que les énoncés de compétences essentielles en santé publique servent :
· De cadre de référence en matière de perfectionnement professionnel, de collaboration, de planification et d’action en ce qui a trait à la main-d’œuvre en santé publique.
· De fil conducteur pour l’enseignement et la formation (p. ex., programmes d’études supérieures et reconnaissance professionnelle en santé publique) et la formation continue en santé publique.
· D’outil de recrutement, d’orientation, de description de poste, d’évaluation du rendement et de rétention du personnel.
· De fondement aux compétences spécifiques à certaines disciplines.
Invitation à participer – Faites connaître votre opinion et vos idées!
Les CCNSP se sont engagés à obtenir des perspectives aussi diverses que nombreuses du milieu de la santé publique au Canada. L’équipe de projet échangera et collaborera avec les principaux partenaires de la santé publique au pays afin d’élaborer des énoncés de compétences essentielles adaptés aux besoins et aux priorités d’aujourd’hui en santé publique.
Les IISCC organisent une réunion participative en mode virtuel afin de recueillir les opinions et les commentaires relativement aux compétences essentielles. Inscrivez-vous pour connaître les dernières nouvelles au sujet du projet et donner votre avis sur les thèmes transversaux, les catégories et ainsi de suite.
Les compétences essentielles réfèrent aux connaissances, aux habiletés et aux attitudes à maîtriser pour assurer des pratiques efficaces en santé publique. Ayez votre mot à dire concernant la mise à jour 2024 des énoncés de compétences essentielles en santé publique au Canada. Vos idées et votre opinion comptent énormément!
Pour en savoir plus au sujet du projet, rendez-vous au https://ccnsp.ca/projets/competences-essentielles-en-sante-publique-au-canada-2024/.
N’hésitez pas à transmettre l’invitation à vos collègues, à vos partenaires de la santé publique et aux membres de vos réseaux.

2024 Core Competencies for Public Health: CHNC Engagement Sessions
Published on Monday, 30 October, 2023
The Community Health Nurses of Canada are reaching out today with some exciting news for the Canadian public health community. The Public Health Agency of Canada has commissioned the National Collaborating Centres for Public Health to engage with the Canadian public health community in order to update the 2008 Core Competencies for Public Health in Canada.
Why is this project important?
The Core Competencies for Public Health in Canada have been used:
· As a framework for public health workforce development, collaboration, planning and action.
· To inform public health education and training (e.g., graduate public health programs, certification) and continuing professional development.
· As a human resources tool for recruitment, orientation, position descriptions, performance evaluation and retention.
· As a foundation for discipline-specific competencies.
Invitation to participate – Share your ideas and perspectives!
The National Collaborating Centres for Public Health are committed to seeking input from a broad and diverse range of perspectives that make up the public health community in Canada. This project will engage and collaborate with key public health partners across the country to develop core competencies aligned with current needs and priorities of the public health system.
The CHNC is hosting a virtual engagement session to receive input and feedback on the core competencies. Hear an update on the project and provide input on cross-cutting themes, categories, and more.
Core competencies reflect the essential knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for effective public health practice. Have a say in shaping the 2024 Core Competencies for Public Health in Canada. Your ideas and perspectives are critical.
