GlobeThe Population Health Improvement Research Network is looking for researchers in Ontario interested in being part of a province-wide network dedicated to providing evidence-based advice to the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care (MOHLTC) as well as participating collaboratively with PHIRN researchers across Ontario. This Program is funded by the MOHLTC under the umbrella of the Applied Health Research Network Initiative (AHRNI).

GOAL: the goal of this network is to enhance capacity in population health research in Ontario and to have researchers available to respond to MOHLTC priorities, to share research ideas and innovations, and to integrate the PHIRN research being conducted and planned for the future.

All network members are considered ‘Expert Resources’. The network will be composed of two categories of members:

  1. Scientists - lead a response to MOHLTC research priorities
  2. Affiliates - Membership in the network and potential to be a member of a team responding to MOHLTC research priorities. An Affiliate can co-lead a response to MOHLTC research priorities.

To be eligible to be a Scientist and possibly lead a response to the MOHLTC research questions you should be:

  • an Ontario-based researcher appointed as faculty in an Ontario University
  • willing to respond to MOHLTC questions as they arise (this can be a quick response to a longer term small research project)
  • willing to provide the PHIRN and its affiliated programmes in Patterns and Pathways of Inequity and Population Health Interventions with your areas of research competencies and expertise
  • willing to report your grants and publications yearly to the PHIRN Program; if funding received from the PHIRN Program, willing to have your grants reported as leveraged by MOHLTC funds

To be eligible to be an Affiliate you should be:

  • an Ontario-based researcher or graduate student/post-doctoral fellow
  • willing to be a member of a team responding to MOHLTC research questions
  • willing to provide the PHIRN and its affiliated programmes in Patterns and Pathways of Inequity and Population Health Interventions with your areas of research competencies and expertise

Benefits to membership include:

  • access to a competitive process for funding PHIRN research trainees
  • access to a competitive process for seed funding
  • for scientists, eligible for research funds to respond to MOHLTC requests
  • ability to share research ideas and results with a large network of PHIRN researchers (increase collaboration and knowledge transfer within the PHIRN community)
  • exposure of your research to the MOHLTC of Ontario and knowledge of MOHLTC priorities
  • ability to use the CHNET-Works! Webinars forum to promote knowledge sharing and discussion
  • access to Working Paper series
  • access to the database of population health researchers in Ontario

To become a Scientist or Affiliate of PHIRN, one must login to our new online Database Directory.

PHIRN’s Online Database Directory:

The online database directory contains the names, areas of expertise and contact details of key researchers in Population Health in Ontario.

The benefits of the database directory include:

  • the ability for key researchers to create and edit their information files,
  • the ability to submit population health related research, events and other population health related documents to our PHIRN Scientific Director for approval to showcase on the PHIRN website.
  • the ability to upload, update and display your CV and photo.
  • the ability to choose how their information will be shared online by selecting one of two database directories:

Partners (i.e., open) database: information is publically shared on the PHIRN website (i.e. anyone visiting the website can view this information). This database enables researchers to view/access partner information from the partner’s database only. To view the partners database please follow the link provided below.

Members database: information is only shared with other members of PHIRN (i.e. not available on the public database). This is the only database that enables researchers to view/access information from both partners and members databases. To view/access this database, one must create an account and select the member only database function. Once an account has been created, one can login by clicking on the members tab on the home page of the PHIRN website.
