Collaboration and Outreach

( Last Updated : February 20, 2006)

Our work involves more than just research. CADTH was created to advance Canada’s capacity to use evidence as the basis for sound health care decisions, and this strategic imperative remains a cornerstone of our work.

Our Implementation Support and Knowledge Mobilization team is comprised of professionals located across the country, enabling us to understand the needs of decision-makers in different jurisdictions, to build strong relationships, and to help put evidence to work at a local level. Knowledge mobilization is the key to getting maximum impact from evidence.

Our Partnerships and Linkages harness the power of collaboration, both nationally and internationally, to share information, transfer best practices, and work together on key strategic issues.

Our structure of advisory bodies provides us with the counsel and expertise of authorities in a variety of key disciplines that are vital to the quality of our work. The members of these bodies also serve as ambassadors for evidence-informed decision-making. 

CADTH collaborates with many other HTA agencies across Canada. A recent CADTH environmental scan identified over 40 HTA groups in provincial government, academic institutions, hospitals, and regional health authorities. A list of these agencies and links to their websites is available here.
