Top Ten insights into rapid learning health- and social-systems

Jun 27, 2018 12:00 - Jun 27, 2018 13:00 | Presented by:

Watch the recording from our June 2018 ‘Top Ten‘ webinar: Top Ten insights into rapid learning health- and social-systems.

Rapid-learning health- and social-systems get the different parts of the health (or social) system and research system working collaboratively to drive improvements in the patient experience and in health or social outcomes. Ontario’s health, social and research systems are increasingly putting patients and rapid learning and improvement at the centre of their priorities, which create a great opportunity to further embed rapid-learning approaches across the health- and social systems. John Lavis, the Forum’s Director, outlines a definition and characteristics of a rapid learning health system and shares insights into how 'windows of opportunity' can be capitalized on or created to stimulate the development and consolidation of rapid-learning health- and social-systems.

Webinars in this series feature top ten insights into health- and social-systems, evidence-informed policymaking and a range of key health and social issues, from Forum experts and influential policymakers, stakeholders and researchers from around the world.
