New Resource--Sharing Together Full Report: Developing an evidence priority agenda for Ontario’s mental health, substance use, and addictions system; EENet

Ontario’s full evidence priority agenda now available!

Evidence Exchange Network (EENet) is excited to release the Sharing Together Full Report: Developing an evidence priority agenda for Ontario’s mental health, substance use, and addictions system.

Sharing Together is an EENet initiative that aims to promote the use of evidence to improve the health care experience, quality of care, and the overall health and wellbeing of all Ontarians. Through Sharing Together, stakeholders identified the evidence they need so they can better do their work and navigate the mental health, substance use, and addictions system.

This full report outlines stakeholders’ prioritized evidence needs, and why this evidence is important for system transformation. The report also includes:

  • capacity building needs of specific stakeholder groups;
  • alignment between Sharing Together’s findings and current provincial initiatives; and
  • next steps in responding to the range of opportunities to develop and use evidence to support the transformation of Ontario’s mental health, substance use, and addictions system.

“We’re excited to launch the final Sharing Together report. The results are important for service and system planning, and align well with current system priorities. EENet looks forward to working with key stakeholders to move this priority agenda forward.” Branka Agic, new Director of Knowledge Exchange, Provincial System Support Program (PSSP), the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).

“Sharing Together involved more than 500 diverse stakeholders of the mental health and addictions system from across Ontario, to co-create this important priority evidence agenda.” Nandini Saxena, Manager, Knowledge Exchange, PSSP, CAMH.
