Public Health Services Research and Evaluation Report (June 2010)
This report highlights the scope of our research and evaluation work undertaken at Hamilton Public Health Services.
Community Health Status Reports
The Public Health Services Applied Research and Evaluation team produces reports on specific health issues and the impact of these issues on the people of Hamilton.
Effective Public Health Practice Project (EPHPP)
EPHPP conducts systematic reviews on the effectiveness of public health interventions, and summarizes recent, high quality reviews produced by others. Although EPHPP reviews focus on public health interventions, review methodology and results are frequently of interest to a broader audience of service and research professionals. The range of review topics is broad. Approximately 4 new reviews and at least 4 new summary statements are completed annually.
Rapid Risk Factor Surveillance System (RRFSS)
The Hamilton Health Unit is interviewing adults 18 years of age and over about behaviours associated with the major causes of death and disability. This on-going monthly survey is called the Rapid Risk Factor Surveillance System (RRFSS). Participants will be asked questions about smoking, drinking and driving, sun safety, women's health issues, bike helmet use, and more.
