Location: The Allstream Centre, Toronto ON
The Ontario Public Health Convention (TOPHC) is hosted jointly by Public Health Ontario, the Ontario Public Health Association (OPHA), and the Association of Local Public Health Agencies (alPHa).
Over the course of the three day convention, each day will be dedicated to addressing one of TOPHC's goals and objectives.
The theme for 2014 is Knowledge to Action. The gap between what we know and its translation into practice has been well documented. TOPHC 2014 is an opportunity to provide practice-based and research-based evidence, share how knowledge exchange can and does work, and provide examples of evidence in action. Learning about “Knowledge to Action” will help us deliver effective policies, programs and practices.
TOPHC aims to advance public health in Ontario by increasing the knowledge and skills in the workforce and attracts government stakeholders from local, provincial and federal levels, and front-line public health professionals, such as health promoters, epidemiologists, public health nurses, physicians, researchers, policy makers and other groups to register. TOPHC includes an exciting mix of both research presentations that share new knowledge and educational workshops that build and refine practical skills.

For the first time, Public Health and Primary Health Care will be hosting a joint conference focused on the shared vision of promoting the best possible health and wellbeing for everyone living in Ontario.
This ground breaking conference will take place June 4 & 5, 2014 at the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North. It will include inspiring presentations, panel discussions, learning and networking sessions that will enable representatives from both sectors to learn from each other and share best collaborative practices on shared priorities.
The conference has three overarching themes:
- Best Practices for Keeping People Healthy,
- Working Upstream to Promote Community Health and Wellbeing, and
- Increasing the effectiveness and sustainability of partnerships between the Primary Health Care and Public Health sectors.
There will also be a special focus on the provincial Action Plan for Health Care and the Public Health Sector's new strategic plan Make No Little Plans and will explore immediate opportunities for collaboration in order to prevent more so we can treat less.
This conference is presented by the Association of Local Public Health Agencies (alPHa) and the Association of Ontario Health Centres (AOHC) together with; the Ontario Public Health Association, Association of Family Health Teams of Ontario, Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario, Ontario College of Family Physicians, Association of Ontario Midwives and Health Nexus. Public Health Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care are also contributing.
