What is the Research and Evaluation Unit's Role?

The Research and Evaluation Unit is responsible for taking leadership of the following CHA activities in the Winnipeg Health Region (WHR). We:

  • develop CHA processes in collaboration with stakeholders from the organization (e.g. Medical Officers of Health, Program Teams)
  • gather appropriate evidence to assess the health status of the population
  • facilitate appropriate use of data on socio-economic, cultural and community-based factors that influence health and people's experiences with health care
  • develop partnerships across the WHR
  • promote community participation and engagement
  • build capacity for interpreting and using data for the purposes of identifying health issues and planning
  • produce the WRHA’s CHA comprehensive report
  • produce and disseminating focused CHA reports
  • prepare Community Area Profiles
  • collaborate with other RHAs through membership in Manitoba's Community Health Assessment Network (CHAN)

A New Direction for the WRHA CHA

In 2005, a regional Community Health Assessment Committee was struck to lead the WRHA in setting a new direction for CHA. CHA has been redesigned to strengthen its usefulness for ongoing regional health planning/operations, and to engage communities in the process.

Regional Guidelines for Community Health Assessment

The CHA process is coordinated provincially by the Community Health Assessment Network (CHAN)—a province-wide collaborative group consisting of representatives from all Regional Health Authorities, CancerCare Manitoba, Manitoba Centre for Health Policy, and Manitoba Health and Healthy Living.  The CHA Guidelines Working Group, comprised of members from health authorities across the province and staff from Manitoba Health and Healthy Living, have prepared regional guidelines to support health authorities in Manitoba conducting community health assessments.
