Supporting High Quality Early Psychosis Intervention in Ontario - What have we learned, where are we going? EENet Management and Resource Centre

September 10, 2015

11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. (EDT)

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care released the Ontario Early Psychosis Intervention Program Standards in 2011 to ensure that early psychosis intervention  (EPI) programs throughout the province provide consistent, high-quality services.  Two surveys were conducted to learn about current program practices across  Ontario in relation to the standards. The first looked at the results with respect to standards 1-6. The second focused on standards 7-13.
This webinar will highlight the results of survey 2, including:

  • The current state of EPI programs with respect to:
    • staff training and education;
    • research, program evaluation, and data collection;
    • barrier-free service and health equity;
    • program networks;
    • accountability;
  • Next steps, including exploring what the existing data can tell us about EPI clients and developing a formal structure for monitoring program performance.

Who should attend?

EPI program managers and staff, system planners, policymakers, researchers,  persons with lived experience, and family members.
