Webinar - Creating Smoke-free Hospitals in Ontario: A documentation of practice study

 

This webinar extended from the recent dissemination of the Creating Smoke-Free Hospitals in Ontario Documentation of Practice (DoP) report. The study was conducted by the Propel Centre for Population Health Research, in collaboration with the Program Training and Consultation Centre, who also partnered to deliver this webinar.

Using a multiple-case design, this DoP study investigated how hospitals, in collaboration with public health practitioners, developed, implemented and integrated policies into practice. Three hospitals with comprehensive smoke-free hospital policies– North Bay Regional Health Centre, Ross Memorial Hospital and Sault Area Hospital – were selected for inclusion in this study.

This webinar provided an overview of the this study and highlighted some of the key cross-case findings. Key informants from each case, including public health and hospital representatives, reflected on their experiences and lessons learned from developing, implementing and sustaining smoke-free hospital policies.

Participants were able to gain an understanding of the key mechanisms in developing, implementing and sustaining smoke-free hospital policies as well as identifying the types of smoke-free policies currently in place in Ontario’s hospitals and the role public health practitioners can play in supporting Ontario’s hospitals to go smoke-free.
