Building on the Understanding THRIVE (Tool for Health and Resilience in Vulnerable Environments) presentation in July, this session will look more closely at how to put THRIVE into action to develop a comprehensive approach to address community determinants of health. This presentation will build on the concepts of community determinants of health previously addressed and focus on THRIVE as a framework to address community health. Participants who did not participate in Part 1 in July should have some knowledge of community determinants of health prior to the webinar.



Participants will be able to:

  1. Define the THRIVE Tool and how it can be used to guide actions to strengthen community determinants.
  2. Articulate the five-step process in the THRIVE Tool.
  3. Apply the Spectrum of Prevention Levels to develop a comprehensive approach to preventing complex health and safety issues.
