 CHHRN Eng Logo  Health Council logo   CHWC.jpg

The CHHRN partnered with the Health Council of Canada to initiate and populate a health human resources (HHR) innovations portal to showcase innovative approaches to health human resource issues. This was recently expanded to include innovations presented at the Canadian Heatlh Workforce Conference that was held in Ottawa in October 2014.  We highlight these innovations within the five key HHR themes of the Canadian Health Human Resources Network.
