The effects of Supporting Innovations in the health and social services network: Lessons Drawn from IPCDC's Model

The Initiative sur le partage des connaissances et le développement des compétences pour relever le défi de la responsabilité populationnelle (IPCDC) [Knowledge-sharing and skills development initiative to meet the challenge of the population-based responsibility] is a consortium formed in 2005. Its mission is to support actors in the health and social services system and their partners in developing their capacity to meet the challenges of their populational responsibilities, thereby improving the population's health and well-being. The IPCDC works in partnership with nine health and social services agencies and 25 CSSS and their partners. It has developed a leading model for supporting change and mobilizing knowledge in Québec's health and social services sector. The principal aim of this project is to document the perceived effects, from the perspective of knowledge users, of the support through change and local innovation process. The knowledge gained will increase understanding of the conditions for an efficient partnership model for support through change. The achievement of this overall goal will be useful both to the development of the IPCDC and the ARIMA project's effective deployment of integrated knowledge mobilization strategies.

EXPECTED IMPACTS

  • Better understand the conditions for an efficient partnership model for support through change
  • Deploy more efficient integrated knowledge mobilization strategies for the ARIMA project
