From Ottawa Public Health
The Strategic Action Plan outlines focused areas of improvement to advance towards positive health outcomes in the community. These focus areas are in addition to the range of mandated programs and services OPH delivers.
The Strategic Action Plan is adapted to the varying levels of maturity, complexity, and timeframes associated with each strategic goal. To gauge OPH’s impact, we will use performance measures that are valid, reliable, and responsive, encompassing both qualitative and quantitative indicators. Adjustments to the Action Plan will be brought forward in response to emerging public health challenges and community needs.
Diverse, multi-disciplinary members from our Senior Leadership Team, Associate Medical Officers of Health, leaders, content experts, and frontline employees leveraged insights from previous consultations with employees, partners, and the current and previous Board of Health, and their own expertise, to develop the evidence-based Action Plan.
