    Public health actors in public, community and academic networks may be called upon to work on public policies and, within the context of this work, to interact with policy makers at different levels (municipal, provincial, etc.). However, they often find that the content of their discourse does not meet all the information needs of these decision makers.

    This document presents a structured process based on an analytical framework that reflects a public health perspective, while at the same time integrating other concerns of policy makers. The document addresses four questions:

    • What public policies does this analytical framework apply to?
    • In what types of situations is it useful?
    • Which policy facets does it focus on?
    • How is the analysis...

    Les acteurs de la santé publique des réseaux public, communautaire et universitaire peuvent être amenés à travailler sur les politiques publiques et, dans ce cadre, à interagir avec des décideurs politiques à différents niveaux (municipal, provincial, etc.). Mais souvent, ils perçoivent que leur discours ne répond pas à tous les besoins d'information des décideurs.

    Dans ce document, nous proposons une démarche structurée basée sur un cadre d'analyse qui part d'une perspective de santé publique tout en intégrant d'autres préoccupations des décideurs politiques. Nous abordons quatre questions :

    • À quelles politiques publiques ce cadre d'analyse s'applique-t-il?
    • Dans quelles situations est-il utile?
    • Sur quels aspects porte-t-il?
    • Comment...

    In 2002, the Table de coordination nationale de maladies infectieuses tasked a multisectoral working group with the development of a professional practice and intervention guide for persons who work with nonhuman primates. In 2010, the Table asked the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ) to publish the guide and make it available to the public.

    This guide is intended primarily for public health professionals, clinicians, emergency physicians, veterinary physicians, and occupational health and safety physicians who work in the organizations concerned with the exposure to nonhuman primates (including physicians responsible for occupational health in the public system).

    This summary conveys highlights of the 2010 population survey results on exposure to clinical preventive services of respondents who have a regular source of primary care. Respondents were instructed to refer to preventive health services received at their regular source of care, regardless of whether the nurse or the doctor conducted the intervention. All data are weighted, taking into account sample characteristics.

    Ce feuillet rapporte les faits saillants des résultats de l’enquête populationnelle 2010 concernant l’exposition aux pratiques cliniques préventives des répondants ayant une source habituelle de soins de 1re ligne. Les répondants étaient invités à se référer aux services de santé préventifs reçus à leur source habituelle de soins, que ces interventions aient été effectuées par le médecin ou par l’infirmière. Toutes les données présentées sont pondérées pour tenir compte des particularités de l’échantillonnage.

    Faire face à la dépression au Québec est un protocole de soins proposant des balises claires pour dépister, évaluer et traiter la dépression selon les meilleures recommandations actuellement disponibles. Plus simple d'utilisation qu'un guide de pratique clinique, il en a cependant toute la rigueur. Il a été développé pour pallier le manque d'outils communs permettant d'offrir des soins en collaboration au Québec.

    Faire face à la dépression au Québec s'adresse, d'abord et avant tout, aux intervenants de première ligne – médecins omnipraticiens, psychologues, personnel infirmier et autres professionnels du secteur public, privé ou communautaire - susceptibles d'intervenir auprès de personnes souffrant de dépression. Bien qu'il puisse être utile pour différents types...

    Promoting safety and preventing crime through a setting-oriented approach requires a structured procedure for planning the various activities to be carried out. The procedure involves mobilizing the population and intersectoral partners, making safety diagnoses and drawing up action plans. The Safety Diagnosis Tool Kit for Local Communities was prepared to assist with this procedure. It comprises several tools, including the Safety Diagnosis Handbook and six methodology guides. The document Turning Safety Diagnoses Into Action Plans: A Guide for Local Communities was prepared in addition to the tool kit, to facilitate the process of translating diagnoses into effective action plans.

    The present document, Guide to Analyzing Crime Using Official Statistics – 2nd edition, is one...

    Like discussion groups, direct observation and literature reviews, semi-structured interviews can be used to gather qualitative information. Interviews of this type are suited to working with small samples and are effective for studying specific situations or for supplementing and validating information derived from other sources used for making safety diagnoses. In addition, since they provide access to perceptions and opinions, they are useful for gaining insight into problems that are not perceptible immediately or are more difficult to observe, but that nonetheless cause concern in certain areas or in certain segments of the population.

    During safety diagnoses, semi-structured interviews should be used to explore crime and safety problems perceived by representatives of the...

    Generally speaking, surveys are used to obtain three main types of information:

    • information on the characteristics of individuals, including their personal characteristics (age, marital status, level of education, etc.), behaviour (amount of time spent doing certain activities, etc.) and living environment (workplace, housing, etc.);
    • information on the opinions of individuals (how safe or unsafe they feel, what they think about certain facts, ideas, programs or events, etc.);
    • information on their past personal experiences (victimization, etc.).

    The data gathered during a survey can be grouped and analyzed to detect trends or associations, such as whether certain groups within a population (e.g. the members of a particular age group, men or...

    A focus group is a group discussion led by a facilitator. Participants are asked to share their thoughts on a particular topic, based on their personal opinions and experience. They are also encouraged to react to the views expressed by other participants and to say where they stand in relation to those views.

    In the model proposed in this guide, focus group participants are selected on the basis of criteria that ensure the life setting under study is well represented. This approach guarantees that the groups provide a wide range of viewpoints and perceptions, and can thus help to shed light on the different opinions and degree of consensus that exist on a given topic, such as the feeling of safety in a regional county municipality (RCM) or a municipality. In safety diagnoses,...
