Key steps for a mental health and addiction performance measurement framework for Canada

March 18, 2019

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time

To inform the development of a pan-Canadian mental health and addictions (MHA) performance measurement framework, we undertook a rapid review of the recent performance measurement (PM) literature and solicited input from 20 MHA policy and measurement experts. Six key steps for framework development were identified: recognizing and acknowledging foundational issues, developing shared language and understanding of key concepts, defining overall scope, defining framework dimension/domains, selecting indicators and using systematic engagement and consultation processes with stakeholders. Subject matter experts underscored the need for a comprehensive engagement process which would honour multiple stakeholder viewpoints and attend to key issues in the co-design of features of the PM framework. Findings from this analysis may be used to inform a comprehensive stakeholder consultation process for the development a pan-Canadian PM framework for MHA. 

This work was a partnership between the research team and staff of the Knowledge Exchange Centre at the Mental Health Commission of Canada. Production was made possible through financial contributions from Health Canada.
