Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project : Research development program : overall profile 2009-2013
The McGill University Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project (McGill Project) adds to the initiatives of the Government of Québec to give English-speaking Quebecers access to the full range of health and social services in their own language. It is an additional tool for implementing and revising regional programs for access to services in English, as prescribed in the Act respecting health services and social services. The McGill Project addresses the recognized needs of English-speaking communities and the challenge that those needs pose for Quebec's health and social services system. Given this, the McGill Project set up various programs to train and promote the hiring and retention of sufficient professionals qualified to deliver health and social services in English. The McGill Project is funded by Health Canada in the amount of $19 million over four years through its Official Languages Health Contribution Program (OLHCP). This report is the third in a three-part series to present the data gathered through the McGill Project from 2009 to 2013. The series deals with the three measures of the McGill Project, namely, the Language Training Program, the Retention and Distance Professional and Community Support Program, and the Research Development Program. The reports are organized to reflect the structure of each program as set out in the reference documents. Each report begins with an introduction of the program, then briefly describes the variables, data sources and sections of the report. This document reports on Measure 3, the Research Development Program, and is meant to inform Program reframing in Phase 3 (2013-2018).
