RISE provides a ‘one-stop shop’ for four types of resources that can support rapid learning and improvement among Ontario Health Teams (OHTs): 1) RISE resources (such as RISE briefs and webinar recordings); 2) resources prepared by other partners; 3) resources prepared by the ministry; and 4) hyperlinks to curated searches of Health Systems Evidence and Social Systems Evidence for systematic reviews of the research literature and related document types (for when no dedicated OHT resources exist).

While resources that have been prioritized for the current development stage of OHTs will be displayed on our ‘Key resources' webpage, you can access all available resources in the menus below. The resources are organized by OHT building block, with links provided to relevant sections or questions in the OHT full application form.

Right now the RISE resources column in the menu only contains RISE briefs (labelled ‘RB’) and RISE rapid syntheses of what’s been learned from research evidence, key-informant interviews, and document/website reviews (labelled 'RS'). Over time, the column will grow to include webinar recordings (labelled ‘WBR’), among other document types.

If you know of a resource that would be helpful to other OHTs, please send it to rise@mcmaster.ca.
