Welcome for stakeholders
The Forum seeks to be a world-leading hub for improving health outcomes through collective problem-solving. We help stakeholders — concerned citizens, heads of medical associations, hospital CEOs, senior civil servants, and international agency staff — work through pressing health challenges using methods to mobilize evidence, spark insights among stakeholders, and generate action.
McMaster has an international reputation for innovation in evidence-based medicine and problem-based learning. The University is home to internationally recognized experts in health policy and systems research, knowledge translation, deliberative dialogues and public engagement.
At the Forum, we marry this critical mass of expertise at McMaster with a need for insights and action to meet pressing health challenges. We harness the best available evidence, convene stakeholders and prepare action-oriented leaders to meet pressing health challenges creatively. Our stakeholder programs include:
To promote continuing discussion and action, we make materials to support dialogues and knowledge translation freely available. Our evidence briefs summarize what is known about a problem, and options for addressing it, using the best research evidence available.
