New fact sheet
on Indigenous approaches to program evaluation



The National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health (NCCAH) is a national Aboriginal organization established in 2005 by the Government of Canada and funded through the Public Health Agency of Canada to support First Nations, Inuit, and Métis public health renewal and health equity through knowledge translation and exchange. The NCCAH is hosted by the University of Northern BC (UNBC) in Prince George, BC. Learn more.  

This discussion paper is the first in a series of three focused on Indigenous knowledge synthesis, translation, and exchange (KSTE) aimed at improving the health of Indigenous people in Canada. It provides an overview of KSTE in public health, evidence-informed public health, types of evidence reviews, implementation science, Indigenous knowledge as “evidence,” research ethics and participatory KSTE, and Indigenous KSTE systems.
Children and Their Vision: What Parents and Teachers Need to Know focuses on the need for regular comprehensive eye examinations as part of every child’s health care, just like visits to the doctor and dentist. 
Children are key to the present and future health and well-being of First Nations communities. Two new fact sheets draw attention to the context surrounding First Nations children’s rights and access to justice.
At this year's Indigenous Physicians Association of Canada (IPAC) National Mentorship Forum, Dr. Margo Greenwood, Dr. Jeff Reading, and Dr. Evan Adam presented on CIPHER – an international collaboration on Competencies for Indigenous Public Health, Evaluation and Research.
The NCCAH funded the research and writing of a literature review examining child development screening and assessment tools and their efficacy in Aboriginal contexts.
