A key focus of OHHRRN is knowledge exchange. This is enabled through OHHRRN Fireside Chats: virtual pan-Canadian discussions for health professionals, stakeholders and researchers interested in topics related to health human resources via a simultaneous telephone and internet conference.
Fireside Chats provide opportunities to share leading edge research, application and to support discussions and mobilization around issues. Advisors on Tap are experts in the field. They provide an overview of leading edge research and support substantive discussions around issues and hot topics such as those related to health human resources. Participants ask questions and make comments via the internet conference, email and/or telephone discussions.
Research programs receiving OHHRRN research grants are provided the opportunity to host a Fireside Chat to share an overview of their research program and results. In addition, OHHRRN proudly supports the dissemination of Ontario led initiatives through the provision of Fireside Chats . Topics have been wide ranging from issues related to the supply, mix and distribution of health human resources in Canada, to innovative technology for health human resource planning, modelling and forecasting, to evidence-based decision making and best practices.
Participants ranging from public health, universities (faculty and students), research institutes, long term care, provincial/territorial health ministry’s and non-government organizations have been appreciative of accessing Canadian experts, research and perspectives as well as networking with their colleagues from across Canada – all with no registration fees, travel costs or green house gas emissions. Depending on the topic, participation has ranges from 10 – 100+. Advisors on Tap have been willing to have participants contact them in follow-up to the discussions.
