One of the National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools' (NCCMT) key priorities is to build sustainable networks and partnerships. While technology can play an important role in maintaining relationships within networks, the value of face-to-face meetings cannot be underestimated. To that end, the NCCMT regularly engages in strategic outreach with public health organizations across Canada.

These outreach initiatives allow the NCCMT to create new linkages with public health professionals. They also support the strengthening of connections between attendees, who might otherwise have limited opportunities to interact with each other in-person.

What is the format for outreach visits?

The format of outreach visits varies; whenever possible, we tailor each visit to the specific needs and interests of the public health organization(s) we are visiting. They typically involve a mixture of activities including:

  • presentations (e.g., sharing an update on the latest products and services available at the NCCMT)
  • workshops (e.g., evidence-informed decision making in public health)
  • networking activities (e.g., networking receptions and knowledge fairs).
