Phase 1 of Sharing Together identifies draft evidence themes

EENet knowledge brokers scanned key background documents that identified priorities at the local, regional, provincial, and national levels and identified draft evidence themes.

We applied the Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA) tool to ensure these documents reflected the priorities of vulnerable populations, including older adults; individuals with low income; First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities; faith communities; and individuals with disabilities.

We also engaged key stakeholders, including members of the EENet Steering Committee and the Persons with Lived Experience and Family Advisory Panel.

The draft evidence theme list from the literature includes:

  • Access to services
  • Standardized care
  • Integrated health care delivery
  • Collection and use of data
  • Effectiveness of services
  • Specialty Psychiatric Hospital Services
  • Supporting the voice of persons with lived experience and caregivers
  • Capacity building and workforce development to improve service delivery
  • Culturally safe and competent care that reflects cultural knowledge
  • Trauma-informed care
  • Prevention and promotion, including suicide prevention
  • Harm reduction
  • Recovery-focused service delivery
  • Stigma and discrimination
  • Children and youth, including transition-age youth
  • Older adults
  • The intersection of criminal justice and mental health
  • The continuum of housing, supports, and homelessness
  • Nutrition
  • Problem gambling
  • Opioid
