Access resources | Resources by year 1 priority populations

 

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, including RISE briefs (RB) and webinar recordings, among others; 2) resources prepared by other partners; 3) resources prepared by the Ministry of Health; 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).

Here we focus on resources by year 1 priority populations, specifically the three selected by a large majority of cohort 1 OHTs (with one reflecting a merger of two highly overlapping populations, older adults with greater needs and people with chronic conditions) and those at risk of or affected by COVIID-19.

Using a population-health management approach to move the needle on quadruple-aim metrics will be common to all projects focused on year 1 priority populations. The following resources can support using a population-health management approach:

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