Overview

 

The INSPIRE-PHC Program is funded through the Health System Research Fund, Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) of Ontario, Canada. This program is funded from April 2013 to March 2016 and is led by Western University with collaboration from:

  • McMaster University, Hamilton
  • Women's College Hospital, Toronto
  • Bruyere Research Institute, Ottawa
  • Queen's University, Kingston
  • Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES), Toronto
  • and includes formal knowledge users from the Primary Health Care Branch, MOHLTC and the Champlain and South East LHINs as well as clinicians and patients at the project level.

Goal: Our goal, as a team of approximately 50 researchers from across Ontario, is to collaborate with health care professionals and policymakers to enhance our primary health care system's: quality, equity, accessibility, links with other sectors of health care and sustainability. There are four projects of research centred around two priorities: one is on Primary Care Reform and the second on Community-Based Care.

The results of this research will provide critical information to Ontarians for continued smart investment in health care to achieve maximal benefit for the population.
