CPHA presented a webinar on 20 January 2021 entitled ‘Gender-Informed Virtual Interventions Addressing Substance Use and Intimate Partner Violence’. This webinar described technology-based approaches in substance use prevention and health promotion. It included information on how technology-based interventions can address sex, gender, and intersectional equity considerations.
This webinar drew upon a scoping review on sex, gender, and substance use as well as a rapid review on interventions for intimate partner violence and substance use in the COVID-19 pandemic, both undertaken by the Centre of Excellence for Women’s Health.
This webinar offered ideas for how service providers, researchers, and policymakers can act on incorporating gender equity as a method for improving health outcomes.
Presenters: Nancy Poole, Julie Stinson, & Lindsay Wolfson
