Our Mission: A New Kind of Health Care for a Healthier Community
When we set out to build our vision and future, we connected with our community - patients, families, visitors, physicians, staff and volunteers. The foundational goals of our new strategic plan - quality, access and sustainability - anchor everything we do. Our mission for a new kind of health care is built on an inter-connected system of care organized around patients - inside and outside the hospital.
At THP, we are relentless in providing high quality, compassionate care to our communities and take great pride in fostering an inclusive and accessible environment and we are all accountable for contributing to a healthy, safe and respectful environment for healing and promoting excellence in patient care though advancing patient and staff safety. If you are passionate about what you do, motivated to improve the health of the community, committed to excellence, quality and patient safety we would like you to join our Better Together team!
The Institute for Better Health (IBH) was launched in February 2014 to help THP achieve its mission of a new kind of health care for a healthier community through research and innovation. IBH takes a patient-centred approach to improve patient experience, care and outcomes, reduce system burden and to enable a more sustainable health care system. IBH will engage with leaders and groups across THP and outside the organization to enable research that is focused on population health and action-oriented health services to address the needs of the community and to create solutions that are meaningful, integrated, scalable and sustainable. Being embedded in one of the largest community-based acute care health service delivery organizations in Canada, offers exciting opportunities to develop, implement, evaluate and share solutions that can be adapted to impact health and care in the province, country and beyond. http://trilliumhealthpartners.ca/researchandinnovation/pages/overview.aspx
To lead and support the research and evaluation priorities of Trillium Health Partners (THP), including activities across the core research themes, the Institute for Better Health (IBH) requires the support of a senior statistician (PhD-prepared) in applied health services research. This position will provide statistical expertise and support for the design, analyses, reporting, interpretation, and dissemination of research and program evaluation initiatives that IBH scientists lead and support. It is expected that this position will also hold a faculty appointment at the appropriate department at the University of Toronto. Furthermore, as the lead for developing statistical analytic capacity at IBH, this position will train and mentor junior statisticians (as graduate trainees or staff) and researcher associates. The statistician will work as a member of various teams at Trillium Health Partners engaged in health services and population health research involving different abilities with respect to statistical knowledge and skills. In addition, this position will be expected, where appropriate and aligned with THP and IBH priorities, to develop their own research program to advance relevant methodological and analytical knowledge. This statistician will report to the Chief Scientist as a member of the scientific staff at IBH.
Specific Immediate Needs:
The Medical Psychiatry Alliance (MPA), the first-of-its-kind in Canada, is a collaborative partnership whose goal is to transform and integrate mental and physical health care. Supported by Trillium Health Partners (THP), the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Hospital for Sick Children, and the University of Toronto (U of T) in conjunction with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) and an anonymous donor, the Alliance is dedicated to transforming the delivery of mental health services for patients who suffer from physical and psychiatric illness or medically unexplained symptoms. http://www.medpsychalliance.ca/Pages/default.aspx
We require immediate statistical support for the Medical Psychiatry Alliance project, within the Adult and Seniors Inpatient Program (ASIP). Our evaluation team requires engagement with a statistician as a member of the scientific team to support work related to design, data collection, analysis and reporting, including lay and scientific publications. In addition, the ASIP program involves multiple data points stored in different places. We need to develop a comprehensive data management plan and strategy to organize all the ASIP data for eventual analysis. This data includes, among other data-points: daily CAM screenings on multiple inpatient hospital units, the use of delirium prevention strategies, and the prevalence of delirious patients on the different units. So far there are approximately 1500 unique patients screened for which we have data. For the other MPA clinical projects we need assistance with developing a data analysis plan and the execution of the data analysis once the data for our evaluation studies is collected.
