This item should likely always be considered to be “in progress” as we work continually to improve processes, collegiality, and create a positive workplace culture . 10. The School and Dean should encourage the formation of new “Research Centres” to provide infrastructure and administrative support to new faculty. Status: in progress Details: At present we have two “practice centres” in Health Informatics (in existence at the time of the review) and Health Evaluation (newly established and in development (these support the professional programs in these areas). Discussions are underway to establish a collaborative, cross- Faculty research Institute in Global Health. Several other possible developments remain under discussion: for example, research clusters in aging and health, and epidemiology and biostatistics. The practice centres provide considerable infrastructure and administrative support for new Faculty. In addition, new faculty have been provided considerable infrastructure and administrative support by the AHS-affiliated Propel Centre for Population Health Impact. We envision that the formation of research clusters will facilitate graduate student recruitment, visibility of research strengths, and enable collaborative research. Finally, all new faculty are provided with some level of infrastructure (space for graduate students, lab facilities, etc.) and administrative support as a matter of course. 11. Staff workloads should be reviewed and new hires be made as necessary to ensure appropriate support across all programs Status: completed Details: A new staff hire (addition to our staff complement) to support the practicum component of the professional programs and accreditation (if pursued) is in process. Explain any circumstances that have altered the original implementation plan: None . Address any significant developments or initiatives that have arisen since the program review process, or that were not contemplated during the review: None. 50
May 2016 Page 6 of 8 Updated Implementation Plan (including only items from the original recommendations that are currently incomplete and “in progress”) : Recommendations Proposed Actions Responsibility for Leading and Resourcing (if applicable) the Actions Timeline for addressing Recommendations 1. The School work with the Dean and Provost’s office to re-balance new hires to achieve a better complement of teaching faculty and faculty with practice experience in public health. Teaching faculty have been hired as recommended. We will investigate whether the “clinical faculty” stream could be modified or expanded to encompass practice- based faculty positions, and will recruit as required to support professional programs. Director and Dean To be determined in discussion with relevant University authorities and FAUW (may have implications for Policy 76 revisions, for example).
