The Manitoba Centre for Health Policy (MCHP) has a long and successful history of leveraging the whole-population administrative data to generate evidence to answer real-world policy questions. This webinar will provide an overview of the Manitoba Population Research Data Repository at the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy, the methodologies MCHP uses to generate evidence, and the partnership-based team science approach MCHP scientists use to turn evidence into policy. The presentation will include an overview of some of the successful initiatives MCHP has led to create, nurture, and enhance partnerships with decision- and policy-makers, government, and community organizations.
