The 2024 Watch List aims to identify and describe technologies and issues related to the care of children and youth with medical complexity that are likely to affect health care delivery and planning in Canada in the next 5 years. By doing so, the 2024 Watch List will help health care decision-makers anticipate future challenges and opportunities for improving the delivery of care for children and youth with medical complexity.
To enhance the quality and relevance of this work, CADTH is seeking to engage people with extensive personal and/or professional experience within a Canadian health system to develop the watch list. Specifically, CADTH wishes to engage with health care professionals who are providing or supporting care for children and youth with medical complexity (e.g., physicians, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, psychologists, social workers, administrators, policy makers) and people with experience receiving care (e.g., youth, former patients, family members, caregivers). In this instance, CADTH is seeking people with the ability to:
- contribute to the diversity of perspectives through direct experience or through awareness of others’ experiences and views within the patient or professional community (for example, experience with a professional or patient association, or as a volunteer, staff member, or board member)
- act with integrity, independent of specific interests
- work constructively as a member of a diverse group.
There are a limited number of engagement opportunities available to support this work, including as an expert consultant or workshop participant. The time commitment will vary depending on the role, with engagement activities expected to occur between October 2023 and January 2024. An honorarium will be provided to those selected for the project.
If selected for this project, we will communicate with you primarily by email. Meetings are held in English through Zoom or Teams link or by toll-free telephone.
