McMaster Health Forum | Communities of Practice

 

We’ll soon be launching a new program focused on building, supporting and sparking action among communities of practice. These communities will provide opportunities for health-system leaders, citizens, researchers and students to engage in collective problem-solving.

Members of the communities of practice will be engaged through social media, online discussion forums, interactive webinars, and face-to-face meetings with leaders in each area. They will also be supported with access to relevant sections of our book and to our other products, structured guides to and maps of available data and evidence, infographics, and a monthly Health Systems Evidence e-newsletter service.

If you are interested in joining a community of practice, you don’t have to wait until we’re fully up and running. Follow us on Twitter for the latest updates in the areas covered by each of our proposed communities of practice:

If you are a health-system leader (a policymaker or stakeholder) and don’t see a proposed community of practice in an area where you’d like to see action, email us at forum@mcmaster.ca to discuss how we can help.
