Event Overview

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care released the Ontario Early Psychosis  Intervention Program Standards in 2011 to ensure that early psychosis intervention (EPI) programs throughout the province provide consistent, high-quality services.

Two surveys were conducted to learn about current program practices across Ontario in relation to the standards. The first looked at the results with respect to standards 1-6. The second focused on standards 7-13.

This webinar will highlight the results of survey 2, including:

  • The current state of EPI programs with respect to:

    – staff training and education;

    – research, program evaluation, and data collection;

    – barrier-free service and health equity;

    – program networks;

    – accountability;

  • Next steps, including exploring what the existing data can tell us about EPI clients and developing a formal structure for monitoring program performance.

Who should attend?
EPI program managers and staff, system planners, policymakers, researchers, persons with lived experience, and family members.
