National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health. (2010). Integrating Social Determinants of Health and Health Equity into Canadian Public Health Practice: Environmental Scan 2010. Antigonish, NS: National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health, St. Francis Xavier University.

Extract from the executive summary:

“The NCCDH has requested this environmental scan to inform its future direction, priorities and activities through an analysis of the key challenges, needs, gaps, and opportunities in the determinants of health for public health. A four-member expert reference group was
established to provide strategic input into the conduct of the scan.

This environmental scan utilized four information gathering approaches: a focussed scan of the literature; 31 key informant interviews with practice and research experts; four focus group teleconferences to validate early emerging themes; and, an online survey with over 600¬† respondents. There was considerable convergence of the findings across the four information gathering approaches.”
