Knowledge Users


Knowledge Users can include policy development staff, planners and decision makers from across the Ontario health system including, but not limited to: Ontario ministries, Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs), hospitals (acute and rehabilitation), Community Care Access Centres, provincial associations and agencies (e.g., Health Quality Ontario, Public Health Ontario).

The INSPIRE-PHC Program has three formal knowledge users who were involved in development of the proposal and are members of the management committee for the overall program.

  1. Paul Huras, CEO South East LHIN
  2. Jacques Lemelin, Primary Care Physician Lead, Champlain LHIN
  3. Melissa Farrell, Director, PHC Branch, Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care

Each Project has its own Knowledge Users based on their needs. These include policy makers, hospitals, community organizations, patients, volunteers.

The INSPIRE-PHC Program is committed to including the voices of all relevant knowledge users as the program progresses.
