Many thanks for all of your input and guidance 2020. For much of the year, we had meetings every two weeks - a meeting on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. One meetings was for the SG working group, where we heard from a wide range of experts and implementers in Canada and beyond. The other, on the fourth Tuesday of each month, was for the CIHR planning project. Together, we completed this project and co-created an action plan to modernize gender, sex and sexual orientation information practices in Canadian EHR systems. The summary and full versions of this report are now available on the Infoway website https://infocentral.infoway-inforoute.ca/en/resources/docs/sex-gender/sex-gender-action-plan; all feedback is welcome.
Now that the planning project is over, the Sex and Gender Working Group meeting will be meeting once per month on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 9am PT / 12pm ET. Our next meeting is Jan 26, 2021. Please mark your calendar. More details about the meeting on the 26th will be provided in the coming weeks.
On behalf of the research team wanted to extend gratitude to everyone's contribution to the CIHR project, and all the best for the coming year,
