Webinar: Evidence Exchange Network's EENet's Health Canada Drug Treatment Funding Program (DTFP) Webinar Series, featuring a National DTFP Project

December 19, 2012

1:00-2:00 p.m. EST

Evidence Exchange Network (EENet) invites you to take part in an upcoming webinar on The Development of a Needs-Based Planning Model for Substance Use Services and Supports in Canada. This is the first National DTFP webinar to present in EENet’s Health Canada Drug Treatment Funding Program Webinar Series.

The Needs‐Based Planning Model project team is working to create a tool to systematically measure the need for services and supports for individuals with substance use problems across Canada, and required service capacities, based on local/regional population need and problem severity. The project team anticipates that the model will be a useful tool for decision makers involved in system‐level planning, and that uptake of the tool will play a fundamental role in advocacy efforts for additional resources in areas where gaps have been identified, as well as to improve the delivery of local services.

During the webinar Dr. Brian Rush, Project Lead, will focus on:

  • An overview of one of the three National DTFP projects
  • The process of the development of the Needs‐Based Planning model
  • Results
  • Next steps
