Listening for Direction

Listening for Direction II: A national consultation on health services and policy issues

Listening for Direction II was launched in November 2003 and includes six partner organizations: the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation, the Institute of Health Services and Policy Research (within the Canadian Institutes of Health Research), the Canadian Institute for Health Information, the Canadian Coordinating Office for Health Technology Assessment, the Advisory Committee on Governance and Accountability of the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Conference of Deputy Ministers of Health, and the Health Statistics Division of Statistics Canada.

Listening for Direction

From January to March 2001, five national organizations including CIHI undertook a consultation to identify research themes for future applied health services and policy research. Called Listening for Direction: a national consultation on health services and policy issues, the main objective of the consultation was to help design research themes that respond to the needs of policy makers and managers in the healthcare system for the next two to five years.

Fifteen themes emerged as the priority areas. They are divided into eight primary themes, which were repeatedly encountered in a variety of forms across numerous settings and perspectives and seven secondary themes which were encountered less frequently but still arising from a number of settings or perspectives. This document provides further details on all 15 themes.

FAQ

The price you pay for an item depends on the type of organization to which you belong. Until you sign in, we do not know which price applies to you.

No. Regardless of the language in which the publication itself is available, the series screen provides a general description of the publications in that series and, for each edition, gives you the option of choosing the language and the media type (for example, paper or PDF) of the publication that you want. CIHI often publishes reports in both English and French, though there is sometimes a delay between the publication of the English version and the availablility of the French version. The series information will always be available in both English and French, even if the report itself is only available in one language.

If you want the downloadable version of an available publication and the price is free, as is often the case, you can simply download the file (usually a PDF) by clicking the Download link. If your browser does not support PDFs and you do not have a PDF viewer, you can download Adobe Acrobat Reader free of charge at Adobe.com. If the publication is not available in a downloadable media type or the price is not free, you will have to add it to your cart so that you can order it. You must be signed in before adding an item to your cart, so if you have not already done so, you will be redirected to the sign in screen.

If you wish to get more information about a publication before deciding to add it to your cart, click the View link under the Details column for the version of the publication that interests you. This will give you more detailed information about that particular publication.
