University Health Network has grown to be one of the largest research and teaching hospital networks in Canada - pioneers in improving the lives of patients. Our long history of health professions education at Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret and Toronto Rehab hospitals has consistently advanced the science of education.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in
Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international
source for discovery, education and patient care.
Being touched by illness affects us in different ways. Many people want to give back to the community
and help others. At UHN, we welcome your contribution and offer different ways you can help so you can find one that suits you.

Today, the Toronto Academic Health Sciences Network (TAHSN), made up of Toronto teaching hospitals (including University Health Network), released its Pandemic Influenza Planning Guidelines. The document provides recommended guiding principles and actions TAHSN hospitals will consider in planning for an influenza pandemic, and serves as a guide for other hospitals.
Some of the highlights:
· Redeploying staff to other roles in the hospital to maintain adequate staffing levels;
Working with other TAHSN hospitals has made it easier to think through these complex issues and to coordinate our approach now than during a pandemic.
Using the TAHSN Guidelines, UHN's Pandemic Task Force will develop our own pandemic plan. We're extremely lucky to have Dr. Michael Gardam, UHN's Director of Infection Prevention and Control and Co-Chair of the TAHSN Pandemic Task Force to guide us through this planning process.
To learn more about the TAHSN Guidelines and about the pandemic, I encourage you to attend Michael's upcoming staff sessions at the times below:
Mon., Jun. 12 at 9 a.m. - TWH WW 2-401 Auditorium
Thurs., Jun. 15 at 9 a.m. - PMH 6 th Floor Auditorium
