iStock_000003922977XSmallShould we try a multiple intervention program for this health issue?

To assess whether you should create a multiple intervention program to deal with a health issue, answer the questions below with your team; they should clarify if the situation is right for a multiple intervention. This activity is also the first step in gathering information on your issue if you decide to continue. Refer to Example 2 - A day in the life of an Ontario Public Health Multiple Intervention Program planning team to see how one planning team answered these questions.

Key question

Your answers

Need:
How big is the problem?

 

 

Potential impact:
How much can we fix it?

 

 

 

Appropriateness:
Are we the best people to do it?

 

 

 

Capacity:
Are we able to do it?

 

 

 

Modification of a program into MIP:
Are we already working on this issue with a single intervention program that would benefit from a MIP approach?

 

 

 

 

Allies and partners:
Who will help us?

 

 

 

Other concerns/issues?

 

 

 

Once you have identified an issue, begin by drafting a general description based on what you know. Start off broadly — your description will focus during the next step, the socio-ecological assessment.
