To support the global transition towards sustainable health systems, researchers at Dalhousie University and Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) have launched a new open-access, interactive database of healthcare’s environmental impacts.
The new HealthcareLCA database serves as an up-to-date evidence repository, bringing together new and existing assessments into one publicly accessible location. The platform allows users to sort, search and filter data according to their individual needs and interests.
On January 18th, 2023, join HealthcareLCA’s creators for an interactive introduction to this exciting new tool.
Lead researcher Dr Jonathan Drew, Adjunct Surgery at Dalhousie University
Senior author Dr Chantelle Rizan, Clinical Lecturer in Sustainable Healthcare at BSMS
Dr Sean Christie, Professor, Dalhousie Department of Surgery and CASCADES Executive Lead
HealthcareLCA is a collaboration between CASCADES (Creating a Sustainable Canadian Health System in a Climate Crisis), BSMS, and the Creating Sustainable Health Systems in a Climate Crisis flagship project at Dalhousie University’s Healthy Populations Institute.
