Implementing EBPs in Mental Health & Addictions, Waypoint Research Institute 4th Annual Conference

Barrie, Ontario
May 17-18, 2016

Holiday Inn Barrie Hotel & Conference Centre, Barrie, ON

As in many other public sectors, Mental Health and Addictions services are increasingly being asked to demonstrate that they are providing evidence-based services for their patients/clients. This conference will be aimed at exploring this issue, some of the challenges that we face in meeting this goal, strategies to overcome the challenges, and successes we can all learn from.

This conference will feature diverse topics, both academic and applied, on knowledge translation/mobilization, implementation science, and quality/systems improvement in mental health and addictions, and at the interface between mental health and other related systems (e.g., education, corrections). Attendees will have access to workshops, as well as traditional academic paper presentations.

The target audience for this conference is anyone with an implementation science, and issues relating to evidence-based practices in mental health and addictions. The focus is inter-disciplinary, and may be of interest to any of the following:

  • Hospital or community-based clinicians
  • Researchers and academics
  • Project managers
  • Consumers/Survivors
  • Students
  • Persons in recovery
  • Leaders and policy-makers in mental health and addictions
