The goal of this course is to equip federal, regional and local health systems planners, hospital administrators, long-term care/community care professionals, emergency planners, sustainability officers, public health officials, health practitioners and others, with the knowledge and tools needed to prepare for climate change. This includes how to apply best practices to assess health system vulnerabilities and adaptation options, measure and monitor the climate resilience and environmental sustainability of health systems, and undertake health system greening, all while integrating health equity and undertaking broad stakeholder engagement.

The course will consist of bi-weekly (Tuesday and Thursday) live-virtual 90-minute sessions, offered in English, Spanish and French through live interpretation. Each session will consist of 40 minutes of “theory/foundation” followed by 1-2 case studies, presenting health authority actions across the Americas. There will be a live question and answer which will be monitored by the program team and questions will be consolidated and addressed to expert lecturers. Resources such as frameworks and suggested readings will be provided to all course participants following each session. Video recordings will be available following each session for asychronous view.
