From EPI Clinical Practice to Evaluation & Monitoring: An EPION Think Tank for Program Staff, Policy Makers and Funders



What are the best tools and strategies for assessing the performance of Early Psychosis Intervention (EPI)programs against the Ontario EPI Program Standards?

What monitoring should EPI programs perform to ensure quality service to clients and families?

What information do LHINs require for system planning?

Join your colleagues as we tackle these questions. Help develop strategies to respond to challenges and opportunities in evaluation.



Who should attend?

  • LHIN Mental Health & Addictions Leads — Identify how evaluation and monitoring within EPI can meet the information needs of LHINs and MOHLTC. Help identify province wide strategies for future evaluation and monitoring of EPI services.
  • EPI Program Managers and Staff — Find out how other programs and LHINs are making use of monitoring and evaluative data. Explore approaches that can work for your program as well as for reporting at a systems level.
  • Persons with lived experiences and families connected to EPI programs — What are the markers of a successful service? Bring your ideas about priorities in evaluation and monitoring to the table.


Keynote speakers:

Dr. John Kane is the Senior Vice President for Behavioral Health Services at Northwell Health in New Hyde Park, New York; Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at The Zucker Hillside Hospital in Glen Oaks; and a Professor and Chairman of Psychiatry at The Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine. Dr. Kane led the implementation and evaluation of NAVIGATE, a multidisciplinary, team based treatment approach for first episode psychosis in communities across the US.

Dr. Donald Addington is a professor in the Department of Psychiatry, University of Calgary and is active in research, education, clinical practice and administration. Research activities include health services research and knowledge synthesis with a focus on quality and outcome of schizophrenia and particularly First Episode Psychosis Services. His most recent activity has been the development of a Fidelity Scale for First Episode Psychosis Services.



The preliminary agenda is available here.



Please note that EPION will subsidize representatives from each EPI program (exact number of travel burseries will be determined based on program size). Please consult with your program manager to determine who will attend.

If additional representatives from your program would like to attend, there is a fee of $125 per person (plus Eventbrite fees).

Persons with Lived Experience and Family members, and a representative from each of the LHINs, will be fully subsidized to attend.

If you are flying into Toronto for the event, Billy Bishop City Airport is right beside the hotel and would be the most convenient to fly in/out of.
