Phase 1: Background information

Phase 2: Consultation workshops

Phase 3: Translation and sorting workshop

During the translation and sorting workshop, partners and experts analysed the outcomes of the consultation workshops. This discussion led to the development of 10 priority issues under which key synthesis and research questions/themes were proposed. A draft report will be developed from the outcomes of the translation and sorting workshop.

Phase 4: Draft report

The Listening for Direction II draft report (PDF - 63 KB) is available.

Phase 5: Validation of the report

Following the translation and sorting workshop, a draft report was developed and posted on the Foundation's web site. All invitees to the consultation workshops (including those unable to attend the workshops) received an e-mail asking them to participate in a validation survey. The purpose of the survey was to provide the partners with feedback from a broad set of experts on whether the themes, and the partners' articulation of key research questions within each theme, accurately reflected their views regarding priorities.

Results indicated that 92 percent of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that the 10 proposed themes would address the priority issues in health services for the next two to five years. In addition, more than 92 percent of participants from the workshops agreed or strongly agreed that the proposed themes reflected the priorities that had emerged during the workshops.
