CHRSP Prioritization and Topic Selection: New Process for 2023
The Contextualized Health Research Synthesis Program (CHRSP) held a province-wide Priority-Setting Meeting for new CHRSP projects on March 1, 2023.
Before the March event, CHRSP researchers conducted a series of pre-consultations with the leaders of the former Regional Health Authorities and with senior leaders and Deputy Ministers of two government departments: Children, Seniors, and Social Development and the Department of Health and Community Services to discuss their suggested priorities for CHRSP decision support through the transition year.
What We Heard: CHRSP Priority Pre-Consultations February 2023
The outcome of the March 1st meeting was a consensus list of priority themes for CHRSP decision support related specifically to two areas: the current health system integration from four Regional Health Authorities to a single Provincial Health Authority and the calls to action of the Health Accord NL.
The summary report below provides a detailed analysis of the results of the voting/ prioritization process and a summary of our discussions with health system and patient partners.
CHRSP Priority-Setting Report from March 1st meeting
Summary of Key Messages in the Report | CHRSP Proecess for 2023:
- Participants at the March 1st meeting reviewed and assessed four priority research themes that had been identified in pre-consultations with our health system partners:
- Health Human Resources
- Healthy Aging/Care for the Older Adult
- The Learning Health and Social System/Health Information, and
- Public Engagement & Communication
- Each theme was considered in terms of its potential importance in five prioritization criteria:
- Contribution to a successful transition
- Decision-making impact
- Patient and Public impact
- Opportunities for funding, partnerships, collaboration, and engagement
- Participants reached a consensus that CHRSP should prioritize decision-support in all four of these areas. No one theme was ranked considerably higher than any other – all were deemed to be important.
NLCAHR is undertaking further consultations with the NL Health Services/ Provincial Health Authority Transition Team to identify specific projects, to finalize the methodology, and to establish schedules and resources for our upcoming work in 2023-2024.
