Health Analytics, Precision Medicine and the PatientSeptember 29, 2016
Online via Webex, Canada
Precision medicine is an emerging field in which treatments are tailored to an individual’s genes, environment and lifestyle, and is on the cutting edge of cancer treatment. U.S. President Obama launched the Precision Medicine Initiative with a $215 million investment in the President’s 2016 Budget. The Precision Medicine Initiative will pioneer a new model of patient-powered research that promises to accelerate biomedical discoveries and provide clinicians with new tools, knowledge, and therapies to select which treatments will work best for which patients.
This webinar will examine the current state of precision medicine, Canada’s readiness to enable precision medicine, the technical and infrastructure requirements for precision medicine, the strategic steps needed in Canada both in the short and long term, and examples of precision medicine in practice.
Canada’s Innovation Agenda – Feasible or FantasyOctober 6 - 13, 2016
Online via Webex, Canada
All Canadians agree that the healthcare system is in trouble and needs improvement. The Federal and Ontario governments are responding with a new Innovation agenda intended to springboard Canada out of the health system doldrums. Will their policies work? In the first session, we describe how we developed a framework for analyzing whether the Innovation programs are likely to work or not.
In the second session, we apply our Framework to two case studies in Ontario and at the Federal level. Will Canada's innovation agenda take-off smoothly, will it run out of runway or will it hit the trees before it takes off? Come find out whether Canada's innovation agenda is feasible or just a fantasy!

Leading primary care to strengthen a population-focuses health system
Ontario’s health system is on the cusp of a profound shift. Patients First has set a direction for primary care and the health system to focus on local integration to meet the needs of people living in our communities. Primary care has the opportunity to become its strong foundation, delivering comprehensive care for all, over their lifetimes, by placing the health of populations in their local communities at the centre.
Over 900 interprofessional primary care providers, patients and community partners will come together to explore how to set a course for primary care, drawing from the experience and views of leaders from all across the province.
