SUCCESSES! • WINNERS of the CIHR KT award for 2005 (regional impact) … nominated by the university, with letters of support from the CEOs and the Deputy Minister • Bev, Sarah and I are going to Ottawa in November • Our CIHR KT Casebook submission was accepted, and it is in the final revision stage as a booklet of KT success stories to be released in December 2005 • Several people are going to Quebec City for the October conference
Some observations • SUSTAINABILITY • Our idea for a #4 deliverable .. “What Works” project is defined as a Manitoba Health deliverable for 2006/07, so we can start working on it! • Pushing ahead money from years 1-5 to year 6 – DONE (plus we won some $$$ from CIHR) • CIHR Team Grant to replace CAHR – up to 5 years of funding … another competition due Nov 15! • Question – can I do it?? • HELP – I think separate letters from each CEO are better • Involvement of Nova Scotia people from Dalhousie?
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. • Ralph W. Emerson
Our next Team meetings, and a crazy idea! • January 30-31, 2005 • June … • Would you be interested in being part of the CIHR Summer Institute of Graduate Students in later June? How could we combine the meetings so they could “taste” what it’s like to co-create research with users of the research?
Some observations: evidence-based story telling, and looking for gold nuggets WE ALWAYS NEED STORIES from the RHAs as to how this is being used, or how you feel it is putting evidence to bear in decisions/planning • Keep those coming! • Will use in future articles and submissions • A “thrust” of the evaluation in the coming months, and in Stephanie Harvard’s work on the effects of our deliverables • Tannis will also be collecting “stories” as part of her qualitative interviews
Some observations • MISCELLANEOUS TIDBITS NEWSLETTERS … thanks to Elaine Burland!! • article on Rural/Northern Indicator differences (is Romanow Right?) sent to the Healthcare Policy journal, and under review • Article in first edition of the Healthcare Policy Journal (tales from the tectonic plates) • One article on the evaluation (Bowen et al.) in press for the Health Services Research and Evaluation Journal. • Will be working on some mental illness report submissions now
Subject: FW: Finally the truth on Food/Fat and Heart Attacks For those of you who watch what you eat...Here's the final word on nutrition and health, and it's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting medical studies: 1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the Canadians, British or Americans. 2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the Canadians, British or Americans. 3. The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the Canadians, British or Americans. 4. The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the Canadians, British or Americans. 5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than the Canadians, British or Americans. 6. Ukrainians drink a lot of vodka, eat a lot of perogies, cabbage rolls and suffer fewer heart attacks than the Canadians, British or Americans. CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you. Thanks to Heather Sparling
Four stages of facing reality(Bisognano 2003) • The data are wrong. • The data are right, but it’s not a problem. • The data are right, it is a problem, but not my problem. • I accept the burden of responsibility.
Homework: October 17, 2005 • IMMEDIATELY – write a letter of support for The Need To Know Team proposal to extend our funding – The CIHR Team Grant – for use by your CEO if s(he) wants help to compose a letter • Sex differences report: dissemination plan for your RHA • Mental Illness Report and other reports • keep track of what you do and what works! We will be collecting information by interviews. • Quasi-experimental program or policy evaluation • Start thinking about who will be interviewed in your region when we contact you • Other deliverable ideas • “From Evidence to Action” proposal – Tannis will be visiting your region
