Community Health Systems Resource Group Welcome

The Community Health Systems Resource Group (CHSRG) vision is to create and implement systemic models for children's success through the transfer of knowledge to all who can influence healthy outcomes for children. Our approach has been to create partnerships with community organizations to facilitate knowledge exchange and the adoption of evidence-based practices. Our current series of international symposia continues and extends our commitment to developing community capacity to improve the outcomes for children and youth. We hope you and your colleagues will join us in this exciting and important work.

Collaborative Research Symposia Series

The Community Health Systems Resource Group at the Hospital for Sick Children is hosting a series of symposia focusing on “collaborative community research as a systemic approach to changing front-line practice”. The symposia will be held between October 2007 and Fall 2009, at different venues around Toronto. Topics will include Mental Health and Educational issues, such as Early Intervention in Psychosis, Girl’s Aggressive Behaviour Problems, Prevention of Eating Disorders and Eating Problems, and Special Education; all with the common theme of changing practice by using collaborative research.
