Stakeholder Advisory Panel

The Stakeholder Advisory Panel (SAP) serves as the broad oversight committee of the ODPRN to lead independent research activity and provide scientific and policy guidance for the ODPRN. This panel brings together an interdisciplinary team of renowned academic researchers, policymakers, data partners and other knowledge users from the scientific community in Ontario to provide clinical and methodological expertise, prioritize research projects, identify external funding and collaborative opportunities, and ensure the successful delivery of the ODPRN projects to the highest quality.

Furthermore, the SAP plays a critical role in supporting the ODPRN’s student training goals by supervising students enrolled in graduate programs across Ontario.
