The Ontario CRISM Node Team (OCRINT) is comprised of an interdisciplinary team of members including academic investigators from institutions across Ontario, community-based intervention providers, system/policy representatives, and people with lived experience.
As one of four Nodes of the pan-Canadian
CRISM Network, OCRINT:
- Conducts CRISM- and/or Ontario-based research into evidence-based interventions for substance misuse towards improved intervention options and systems
- Shares and translates knowledge and evidence to support the enhancement of prevention and treatment services regarding substance misuse/addiction to decision-makers and service providers
- Enhances collaboration and communication between researchers, service providers, policymakers, and those with lived experience both regionally and across the country
The OCRINT lead and coordination hub is housed within the Institute for Mental Health Policy Research at the
Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto, Canada’s largest research and treatment hospital for mental health and substance use problems, and led by Dr. Jurgen Rehm, Senior Scientist, and Professor and Chair (Addiction Policy), University of Toronto, together with a team of Co-Principal Investigators/Knowledge Users.
