Module 1: Conduct a Socio-Ecological Assesment
Ontario Public Health Practioners


Step 1: Consider determinants and interconnections

  • Clarify your assumptions about how health disparities are created and maintained
  • Identify your target group using health status indicators
  • Identify the factors (determinants) that contribute to the health status
  • Explore how the determinants of health potentially interact
  • Identify potential health disparities

Step 2: Use theories to help identify the socio-ecological systems levels to target for change

  • Review theories about how interventions address health disparities

    Review the evidence to ensure more than one system level targeted
  • Consider the range of determinants influencing the health issue
  • Identify the socio-ecological levels
  • Pay special attention to determinants at levels which you might not usually consider in planning interventions
  • Use theory to identify integrated pathways
  • Identify who else needs to be involved
