McMaster Health Forum| Our Services

 

Health-system leaders looking to strengthen health systems and get the right programs, services and drugs to those who need them, can contact forum@mcmaster.ca to draw on our services in any of five domains. Social-system leaders seeking similar types of support can now access our services through Forum+.

We can help health-system leaders with the following actions.

  • Learn how to make evidence-informed decisions
    • You can register to take either online or face-to-face courses or contact us to set up an agreement to host one of our customized training sessions through our Health Systems Learning program.
  • Find the evidence that matters
    • You can contact us to:
      • set up a service agreement so your organization can call on us to prepare rapid syntheses in three, 10 or 30 business days;
      • commission us to prepare an evidence brief or citizen brief (to inform a stakeholder dialogue or citizen panel, which we return to below); and
      • engage us to create and maintain a ‘white label’ version of Health Systems Evidence, much as we have done for PHC Evidence.
  • Spark action on pressing issues
    • You can contact us to:
      • commission us to convene a stakeholder dialogue, citizen panels or a combination of the two; and
      • set up a service agreement so your organization can rely on us to build or re-invigorate and support a community of practice.
  • Embed supports for evidence-informed decision-making
    • You can contact us to find out how you can engage us to conduct ‘supportive audits,’ undertake external reviews of reports, and adapt resources to the needs of your organization, among other services.
  • Evaluate innovations
    • You can contact us to discuss how to commission us to plan and execute evaluations.
