It is a pleasure to connect with you across care, research, and education through this weekly CEO update – all in service of A Healthier World.
In response to COVID-19, UHN activated its Executive COVID-19 IMS (Incident Management System) table. Membership includes our Executive Leadership Forum and other members of COVID-19 work streams. The group meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is a snapshot of the discussion.
UHN's Executive Leadership Forum (ELF) represents a broad range of voices and skill sets from across the organization and provides direction and oversight in service of patients, TeamUHN and our vision of A Healthier World. See the full membership on
The last ELF meeting was held on November 18, 2021.
November 25 is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. According to the United Nations, 1 in 3 women and girls experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime; most frequently by an intimate partner. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, emerging data and reports have shown that all types of violence against women and girls, particularly domestic violence, has intensified. During Wave 1 of the pandemic, Statistics Canada surveyed Canadians and found that
10 per cent of women reported concern about the possibility of violence in the home, and a
7 per cent increase in domestic disturbance calls to Toronto Police Services. This documented prevalence of gender-based violence and misogyny is opportunity to reflect on our individual contributions to correcting the harm that still exists today for women and girls of all identities including, LGBTQ2+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, two spirit), gender-diverse and BIPoC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour).
Here are a list of resources from the U.N.
New Gattuso Centre for Social Medicine website. UHN's Social Medicine Program has launched a new website. As we all know, especially after important learnings during the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot can be done to eliminate historic and systemic barriers in order to truly promote& universal, equitable health care in Canada. I encourage all members of TeamUHN to visit the
Gattuso Centre for Social Medicine website to learn more about the amazing work this team is leading in partnership with community organizations. Additionally, in anticipation of the upcoming expanded vaccine eligibility for third doses, the Centre will be partnering with Vaccine Hunters Canada. Look out for updates on how this partnership will further develop digital tools to improve access to COVID-19 vaccines, and provide informational resources and support to those who need it most.
