Call for Proposals on Integrated Health Systems




I. Research/background paper that examines the role of health promotion within Integrated Health Systems (IHS).

One of the key activities of the Working Group is to develop a research/background paper that examines the role of health promotion within IHS. This paper will be approximately 50 pages in length and will include a three page summary.



The main audience for the background paper is the Integrated Health Systems Program, Health Strategies Group, Ontario Ministry of Health. A secondary audience for the paper includes health professionals, organizations, and associations that are developing positions on, or acting collectively to influence the development of, IHS in Ontario.



The Centre is requesting mini-proposals from individuals and/or groups who are interested in serving as the lead author for the background paper. The proposals should include a work plan and a budget. It is anticipated that the lead author will need approximately 20 to 30 workdays to complete the background paper. The tentative deadline for the paper is mid summer.



The Centre will "broker" the proposals to potential funders. This project is contingent on finding appropriate funding.



II Deliverable: IHS Annotated Bibliography



The Centre is requesting mini-proposals from individuals and/or groups who are interested in developing an annotated bibliography on Integrated Health Systems.



Please indicate your interest in either task by submitting a CV or resume, two references, and a mini-proposal (1 page) that includes a work plan, and a budget by Friday, May 9, 1997.
