Knowledge Exchange for Agencies Serving Women with Substance Use Issues

Connections is a program of research being led by researchers at McMaster University and McMaster Children’s Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario that focuses on improving addictions services for women and their children.

The primary goals of Connections are to identify the needs and preferences for receiving research evidence among decision makers and clinicians working with women with substance use issues in almost 800 addictions agencies in Canada and to use this information to develop, implement and evaluate knowledge translation and exchange strategies.

Clinicians, program managers, executive directors, policy makers, and researchers working in the field of women’s addictions in Canada are invited to join their Network.
