Past Projects


Mental Health & Addiction Working Group

The Mental Health & Addiction Working Group fell under the direction of the former Community Engagement Committee of SWAHN.

The purpose of the Mental Health & Addiction Working Group was to engage health/human service providers and academics from different professions, students, and service users from across Southwestern Ontario in the development and implementation of interdisciplinary initiatives that address mental health and addiction-related concerns in the region. Specifically, the advancement and/or improvement of clinical practice, public awareness, system change, knowledge translation, research, and innovation, was considered. The activities of the former Mental Health & Addiction Working Group can be accessed through the following link: swahn.ca/50/Mental_Health_and_Addiction_Working_Group/.
 


Research Ethics Harmonization Working Group

The Research Ethics Harmonization Working Group fell under the direction of the former Knowledge Generation and Translation Committee (KGTC) of SWAHN
 

The purpose of the Research Ethics Harmonization Working Group was to explore potential frameworks with respect to developing a process for agreements involving organizations that contribute to SWAHN to obtain ethics approvals when working together on research initiatives that are in keeping with SWAHN’s mission to improve the health of Southwestern Ontario’s population. (NOTE: The Working Group’s efforts focused on research that involved human subjects (only) and SWAHN-related projects.)  The primary deliverable for this Working Group was achieved in 2017.  A report highlighting the use of software provided by Clinical Trials Ontario for streamlined ethics submissions for multi-site studies can be found here.
