Collaborative Work Goes Further
The Equity in Health Systems (EqHS) Lab is proud to amplify the important work of collaborative partners (listed alphabetically below). We would encourage you to check out their important work and programs by clicking on the links to their websites.
We are looking to collaborate with other like-minded foundations, community groups, institutions, organizations and governmental agencies to help us fulfill our goal.
The Centre for Advancing Collaborative Healthcare and Education (CACHE) is a strategic partnership between the University of Toronto and the Toronto Academic Health Science Network with the University Health Network as lead hospital. We collaboratively lead the University of Toronto’s Interprofessional Education (IPE) curriculum, partnering with 11 health sciences programs and a practice network including more than 15 Toronto hospitals. We collaborate with local, national, and international partners to advance education, practice, research, systems, and policy toward better work and care for all, offering professional development programs and consultation to support this advancement. We keep learners and community, patient/client and family/caregiver partners at the heart of our work.
The Centre for Effective Practice (CEP) is one of the largest independent knowledge translation organizations for primary care in Canada. It brings together knowledge, evidence, expertise and resources to ensure frontline providers have the information they need to deliver high-quality care and improve patients' health outcomes. In Ontario alone, its work reaches over 18,000 healthcare providers each year through established relationships with key organizations, medical schools, colleges and associations.
Evidence2Practice Ontario (E2P) is working with hospital and primary care partners to improve provider experience and enhance patient care. Together we are designing easy-to-use digital tools and implementation supports that seamlessly integrate the most up-to-date and relevant evidence and quality standards into front-line clinical systems across Ontario.
E2P brings together multi-disciplinary, cross-sector expertise under the joint leadership of the Centre for Effective Practice, eHealth Centre of Excellence and North York General Hospital. It is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health as part of Ontario’s Digital First for Health Strategy with support from Ontario Health.
Dr. Jerry M. Maniate, Founding Director & Investigator at EqHS, is a member of the E2P System Stakeholder Panel and brings expertise from a DAIER (Diversity, Accessibility, Equity, Inclusion and Respect) perspective.
