McMaster Health Forum | Our resources

 

McMaster University has an international reputation for excellence in evidence-based medicine and problem-based learning. The Forum has extended this reputation into the fields of evidence-informed health systems and collective problem-solving.

The following are resources created or co-created by the Forum to support our programs in these two fields, and the health-system leaders (and through Forum+, the social-system leaders) and the programs they serve.
