Learn about RISE | RISE team

 

RISE works as part of the Ontario Ministry of Health’s OHT Central Program of Supports to support the development and maturation of Ontario Health Teams. RISE brings together a distributed group of RISE team members and draws on McMaster Health Forum staff. Connect with us by emailing rise@mcmaster.ca or find our personal contact information in our profiles.

RISE team

Our team includes one co-lead and one focal point based at each of the McMaster Health Forum (Forum), Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI), and Trillium Health Partners' Institute for Better Health (IBH), as well as an executive lead based at the Forum. Two of the technical focal points will start work in September.
