Clean drinking water in Pikangikum. A lack of access to clean drinking water is a significant health and quality of life issue for many First Nation communities across Canada.
On June 20, 2018, Indigenous Services Canada listed 78 First Nations that have long-term drinking water advisories in effect. The Indigenous people of Pikangikum, a remote fly-in Ojibwe community in northern Ontario, know what it’s like not to be able to drink water directly from the tap – they have been under a boil water advisory for more than a decade. Not only that, just 109 of the 500 homes in Pikangikum even have a tap – the rest must travel to one of six watering points in the community to collect water in buckets for drinking or cooking. The elders of the band identified finding, and implementing, a solution to providing access to clean drinking water in homes as a top priority for their community.

Clean water advocates set up 'water bar' in downtown Winnipeg, offer glasses of brown, murky water. The Friends of Shoal Lake 40 were in Winnipeg today to offer samples of dirty water to the lunch-time crowd at a downtown sky-walk.
They hoped to raise awareness about the lack of clean drinking water in many First Nations communities. "Not everyone has access to clean drinking water. In Winnipeg, we are gifted with the ability to have great water right out of the tap. But in Shoal Lake 40 for example, the source of Winnipeg's water, they've been under a boil-water advisory over 19 years now," said Jon Benson, who is a member of the group. The event was held today in honour of World Water Day, which happens to be on the same day city hall will decide if it will increase its contribution to "Freedom Road," which will connect Shoal Lake 40 to the Trans-Canada Highway. The Social-Ecological Model: A Framework for Prevention. CDC’s goal is to stop violence before it begins.
Prevention requires understanding the factors that influence violence. CDC uses a four-level social-ecological model to better understand violence and the effect of potential prevention strategies. This model considers the complex interplay between individual, relationship, community, and societal factors. It allows us to understand the range of factors that put people at risk for violence or protect them from experiencing or perpetrating violence.
The overlapping rings in the model illustrate how factors at one level influence factors at another level.

Feds break promise to eliminate all drinking water advisories in 2021, vow wo... OTTAWA -- The federal Liberal government has admitted that its promise to eradicate all drinking water advisories in First Nations communities across Canada by March 2021 will be broken, because “at least” 22 existing drinking water advisories will remain in effect past the promised deadline.
Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller provided an update on Wednesday on the government’s longstanding commitment, where he said Indigenous communities have made it clear they don’t want “an Ottawa-imposed deadline,” but rather a sustained, long-term commitment to improve water systems for First Nations people, based on their priorities. While he defended Prime Minister Justin Trudeau first promising a concrete deadline during the 2015 election campaign, Miller said it was “an ambitious deadline” that has become a “rallying cry for something that's much more profound, which is ensuring that people have access to clean and safe drinking water.” Ecological Model of Health: Understanding the Increased Risk of Oral Disease in Aboriginal Populations in Canada. – Shandel Grimm-RDH. Bircher and Kuruvilla (2014) define health as “a state of wellbeing emergent from conductive interactions between individuals’ potentials, life’s demands, and social and environmental determinants”, where health is a goal that could have different meanings for different people, at different times, in different places.
Canadian reports show that Aboriginal people are at higher risk of poor oral health than non-Aboriginal Canadians. (Wolfe, Ishaque & Aung, 2012; Cavin, 2015; Charbonneau, Neufeld, Craig & Donnelly, 2009). Evaluating the social determinants of health and the ecological model of health helps to understand the complexity behind the increased risk of dental disease in the Aboriginal populations, and highlights a multi-level approach to improving their oral health.
Crisis in northern Ontario nursing stations: Health workers sound the alarm. On any given day in Sachigo Lake First Nation, there are often only two nurses at the local nursing station, says Ben Langer, a resident doctor who visits for a week each month.
One registered nurse provides all primary care to the roughly 400 community members — treating acute injuries, providing bedside care for those too sick to leave their homes, conducting contract tracing for sexually transmitted diseases, and counselling patients on how to use medication. “All the aspects of the health-care system,” says Langer, “just under one roof.” The nurse-in-charge does all the administration: processing paperwork, sending and receiving lab tests and results, explaining those results to patients, booking appointments, and liaising with band leadership.
“When I'm there, it creates more work,” says Langer. Login. Random Effects Model in Healthcare: Uses & Analysis. Fixed Effects vs.
Random Effects Model Fixed Effects Model A fixed effects model involves individuals that are distributed into different treatment groups. This type of model provides information about the effects of specific correlations of treatment and how it affects the groups of individuals. Carol puts this model into perspective by associating what she wants to research into the different treatment options for CHF.
