In 2000, Dr. Peter C. Coyte
was awarded a Chair in Health Services Research from the Canadian
Health Services Research Foundation in partnership with the Canadian
Institutes for Health Research. The Ontario Ministry of Health
and Long-Term Care was a regional co-sponsor of this Chair.
Dr. Coyte’s chair, entitled,
Health Care Settings and Canadians: A Program of Research,
Education and Linkage, resulted in close to $5 million in funding over 10 years to advance
health services research, training, and linkage and exchange activities.
Health system restructuring
and rapid technological developments in Canada triggered
a dramatic shift towards the delivery of ambulatory, home-based,
and more recently, internet-based health care ("eHealth").
This dispersion of health care services to the places where Canadians
live, work, and attend school will have major social and health
However, while restructuring
had been rapid and ubiquitous, research and research capacity
to assess the impacts and implications of such change has been
lacking in Canada.
The CHSRF/CIHR Chair in Health Care Settings
and Canadians was designed to address
this gap. The Chair generated a growing
body of research evidence and a growing network of colleagues,
students, and industry and policy partners who use evidence to
inform decision-making in the financing, delivery, and organization
of home and community care. The Chair program operated in collaboration
with 11 industry and community partners.
