Axis 1 – Introducing New Organizational Forms in Healthcare

Axis 1 – Introducing New Organizational Forms in Healthcare

Analyzing the implementation of healthcare networks is an important component of the CIHR team's program. The formation of these networks, that is, of more horizontal structures better adapted for coordinating primary care and targeted care, is the focus of many reforms. This project aims to 1) analyze how health organizations progress toward operating within networks and 2) better understand the management and governance practices that foster this transition in Quebec and Ontario. + More...



Axis 2 – The Role of Knowledge in the Renewal of Governance Practices

Axis 2 – The Role of Knowledge in the Renewal of Governance Practices

The renewal of governance practices and techniques with the aim of fostering innovation, adaptation and performance is the focus of many reform projects in the public sector. The Canada Research Chairs (CRC) program pays particular attention to the mobilization of governance instruments and mechanisms for developing a realistic approach to practices informed by research findings. Thus, our work combines delegation-based governance perspectives with those of governance based on the renewal of influence in service systems. Three projects pertaining to these issues are being launched. One project, in partnership with the Agence de la santé de la Montérégie (CHSRF: 2009-2011), aims to analyze the potential for innovation of making venture capital available on a competitive basis, in combination with organizations' systematic support processes. Two research projects on the potential of knowledge-sharing networks (CIHR team) to foster innovation are also being completed: a) a systematic synthesis of knowledge networks (2009-2011) and b) two case studies (2010-2012) of structuring organizational initiatives to foster the management of knowledge in a health region (Montéregie) and in Quebec's entire healthcare system (IPCDC initiative, Institut national de santé publique du Québec).+ More
