DHB Candidate Scorecards 2019 - Measuring up on public health
DHB elections are taking place this year. The Public Health Association endorses candidates who understand and prioritise health equity and population health issues and have broad experience in both governance and the health sector.
In order to identify candidates with an excellent track record and who understand the complexities of the health system three PHA branches, Otago-Southland, Canterbury and Wellington, with the support of national office, have produced DHB candidate scorecards based on responses to a survey sent to all DHB candidates.
This initiative follows the very successful scorecards Wellington branch developed for the previous DHB election in 2016.
The 2019 survey (sent via Survey Monkey) quizzed the candidates on their alignment with PHA public health values and policies as well as their health sector and governance experience. The responses were then collated and scored by a subcommittee within each branch with the candidates' responses receiving a score for each category (prevention focus, equity, pro-fluoridation and knowledge/experience) ranging from 1 (does not align) to 4 (strongly aligned).
The final scores were then sent to a designer who created a professionally designed scorecard in a format for printing (an A4 triple-fold brochure) and a single-sided jpeg for sharing on social media. Names and photos of candidates were listed in alphabetical order to avoid ranking candidates, and their scores were represented as yellow emoji faces.
The branch launched its scorecard at its Meet the CCDHB Candidates event (co-hosted with UCAN) on Wednesday 18 September at St John's Centre, Wellington.
