Session Overviews 

Indigenous Health & Physical Activity

Indigenous Physical Health is often looked at in a holistic way by including 4 quadrants of health that are interconnected; Spiritual, Emotional, Physical and Mental. These are reflected in the medicine wheel. However, the current evaluation process for physical health in Ontario often focuses on one specific quadrant of health – physical. This session discusses a novel approach to child health assessment which encourages children to share their perspectives on their own health and wellness in a culturally appropriate manner. The Aboriginal Children’s Health and Well-being Measure considers the interconnectedness of the 4 health quadrants through eyes of Indigenous children.

Physical activity in cancer survivorship

Physical activity has gained recognition as an important supportive care strategy for cancer survivors for improving quality of life and possibly reducing risk of recurrence and cancer-related mortality. As a result, many cancer organizations worldwide, including Cancer Care Ontario, now endorse physical activity for cancer survivors and have established specific recommendations for physical activity in cancer survivorship. This presentation will provide information about the current state of research on the field of physical activity and cancer survivorship including benefits, optimal type of programming, and special precautions.

Dr. Kristina Karvinen
Kristina Karvinen, PhD is an Associate Professor in the School of Physical and Health Education at Nipissing University in North Bay, Ontario. She completed her doctoral work in the Faculty of Physical Education at the University of Alberta within the field of Behavioural Medicine with a focus on physical activity in cancer survivorship. Her research interests centre on several sub-disciplines within the field of physical activity and cancer, including the benefits of physical activity in cancer survivorship, motivation for physical activity across the cancer trajectory, and the role of oncology care providers as agents for providing physical activity guidance and support to their patients.


Physical Literacy and the Active Sudbury project

What exactly is Physical Literacy? How does this differ from physical fitness? And why is Physical Literacy so important to the health of our population? Find out how the Active Sudbury collaborative is working together in the community to increase the level of Physical Literacy in the sectors of Education, Health, Sport and Recreation, and Early Years Education, all with the long-term goal of a happier and healthier community. Learn how to integrate Physical Literacy into your existing programs and discover how you can contribute to your community!

Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Children and Youth: An Integration of Physical Activity, Sedentary Behaviour, and Sleep

We think of young children as busy, but that doesn’t mean they’re active. Many Canadian kids are getting too little physical activity, and spending too much time in front of screens, which is particularly harmful before age five. As young children grow and develop, they need to work towards high levels of physical activity, low levels of sedentary behaviour and sufficient sleep each day to be healthy — they need to Move, Sleep and Sit the right amounts. The new Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for the Early Years (ages 0-4) show there is an important relationship between how much sleep, sedentary behaviour and physical activity children get in a 24-hour period.
