Our UHN programs and services are among the most advanced in the world. We have grouped our physicians, staff, services and resources into 10 medical programs to meet the needs of our patients and help us make the most of our resources.
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.
Our 10 medical programs are spread across eight hospital sites – Princess Margaret, Toronto General, Toronto Rehab’s five sites, Toronto Western – as well as our education programs through the Michener Institute of Education at UHN. Learn more about the services, programs and amenities offered at each location.

When pain specialist Dr. Andrea Furlan realized some physicians were prescribing pain relief medication opioid without enough knowledge to do so accurately, she wanted to take action.
"There is a huge issue in Ontario with patients not receiving the appropriate opioid treatment for their pain symptoms," said Furlan, who works at Toronto Rehab. "This stems from some physicians lacking the knowledge to appropriately prescribe opioids without increasing the risks of overdose or addiction."
Canadian physicians are given opioid guidelines and paper algorithms to help them decide how much opioids to give and how to screen patients at increased risk of overdose and addiction. What the paper algorithms don't do is to calculate the risk scores or to switch from one opioid to another.
Furlan saw this as an opportunity to develop a mobile application for physicians to use with their patients to help them with pain management and prescribing opioids. The application is called
Opioid Manager™ and is available on iTunes.
On May 22, Furlan will present her app and her experience developing it in the Mobile MED Showcase at Toronto Rehabilitation Institute.
There will also be a presentation from the creators of KidList - a prize-winning app project from the Hacking Health for Kids 2014 Hackathon that facilitates communication between the Pediatric Advanced Care Team (PACT) at SickKids.
