This is an event recording of the May 2, 2018 webinar with presenter Dr. Sinead McElhone. 44 participants joined this event from 20 different organizations across Niagara.

During this webinar, Dr. McElhone offered a new way of looking at health, not as disconnected stages unrelated to each other, but as an integrated continuum. Presenting data using a Lifecourse approach identifies times at which targeted interventions may be especially effective. Health and social care organizations can then use this information to offer services that provide safety nets and springboards for individuals during key life periods to alter life course trajectories in a positive way. Dr. McElhone examined multiple Niagara specific data sources to examine the key reasons why individuals interact with health services.
