The Ontario CRISM Node Team (OCRINT) is comprised of an
integrated team of over 30 members including: academic investigators from institutions across Ontario, community-based intervention providers as well as system/policy representatives, next to people with lived experience.
As one of four Nodes of the pan-Canadian
CRISM Network, OCRINT will:
- Conduct CRISM- and/or Ontario-based research into evidence-based interventions for substance misuse towards improved intervention options and systems
- Share and translate knowledge and evidence related to interventions for substance misuse towards improved interventions and systems
- Enhance collaboration and communication between researchers, service providers, policy makers and those with lived experience both regionally and across the country
The OCRINT lead and coordination hub is housed 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. Benedikt Fischer, Senior Scientist at CAMH and Professor (Psychiatry and Institute of Medical Science), University of Toronto, together with a team of Co-Principal Investigators/Knowledge Users.
