Governance


Any organization, group or individual focused on the health of others may be affiliated with SWAHN. The Network has engaged several education and research institutes, community and teaching hospitals, long term health care, community service providers, and other healthcare organizations across Southwestern Ontario and beyond through its Project Team structure as well as through other activities (like retreats, conferences, and symposiums).

SWAHN has three streams in alignment with our value proposition: 1) Interprofessional Collaboration, 2) Knowledge Generation & Translation, and 3) Networking & Engagement. Project Teams (formerly known as Working Groups) are aligned to the first two streams. Dr. Robin Walker, SWAHN Co-Lead, provides oversight to the Interprofessional Collaboration Stream.  Similarly, Dr. Davy Cheng, SWAHN Co-Lead, provides oversight the Knowledge Generation & Translation Stream. The third stream, Networking & Engagement, is led by SWAHN's Secretariat and focuses on the development of the annual SWAHN conference and Network Contributors' meetings. 

The roles and responsibilities of Project Team Co-Chairs and volunteers are outlined in the following two documents.
