CIHR Health and Human Resource Policy Chair
Dr. Ivy Bourgeault is the Health Canada – CIHR Chair in Health and Human Resource Policy (HHR), and a professor in the Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences at the University of Ottawa.
Dr. Bourgeault's goal for the HHR Policy Chair is to introduce an HHR lens to Health Services and Policy Research (HSPR). Coming to the field of HSPR from a background in sociology, Dr. Bourgeault wants to use the Chair as a way to focus health services research on health and human resource policy research dialogue, while building a bridge between sociology, policy, economics and health services.
Through the activities of the HHR Chair, Dr. Bourgeault has been able to increase the awareness of HHR. She has helped to create conversations with policy communities to focus on explicit HHR research and as a result created a network of HHR researchers. Dr. Bourgeault has also been working to address some key challenges facing the field of HHR by creating a prototype for an observatory to collect data, create knowledge, act as a repository for information, and create linkages with users of knowledge in this field.

OTTAWA, ON - The health care report released last week following the Premier's meeting in Halifax, which focused on moving from innovation to broader health system action, represents a critical step in a more collaborative and engaged approach.
The recommendations contained in the report, From Innovation to Action, regarding the three inter-related areas of health human resource management initiatives, team-based models of care and clinical practice guidelines, also highlighted how we must take better advantage of our knowledge infrastructure to better address these key issues. The recommendations also called for a platform for ensuring the ongoing identification and dissemination of information on innovative models in order to help promote the adoption of leading practices.
On April 24, 2012, Dr. Ivy Bourgeault, Professor, Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences, University of Ottawa and CIHR Research Chair in Health Human Resource Policy, visited Memorial to talk about the migration of healthcare workers and their integration into the Canadian workforce.
The migration of highly skilled health professionals from developing to developed nations has increased in the last ten years in response to a range of social, economic and political factors. When health professionals move away, their departure has implications for health outcomes and health system sustainability in their home countries. Their arrival also raises human resource issues in destination countries like Canada.
