Mission of Knowledge Management:
"To contribute to effective and efficient public health practice through knowledge management applications, ranging from programme evaluations to custom research to health informatics".
Knowledge Management is a multi-disciplinary team comprised of research associates, information technology specialists, an epidemiologist, a geographic information system (GIS) analyst, and program and research assistants. The multi-disciplinary nature of the team allows for the execution of a wide range of services and projects. Knowledge Management helps to support staff in meeting the Ontario Public Health Standards and improve the health of our community through: programme evaluations, community health status reports, e-Heath applications development, GIS mapping and spatial analysis, custom research, scientific and ethical review, and knowledge transfer and exchange (KTE). KTE activities include workshops, peer-reviewed publications, funding applications, and building and maintaining external partnerships and collaborations.
