To create focus and facilitate impact through mobilization of the membership, the network has three Research Groups centered on the network's strategic priorities:
Leaders in cross-cutting topic areas such as populations (e.g. pediatrics, adults, older adults), environment (e.g. clinic, workplace, sports/recreations) and type of research (e.g. basic, prevention, clinical, economic/policy) are included in all groups to enhance cross-linkages.
Each Research Group will work closely with the Administrative Hub to communicate and disseminate timely information to all network members and beyond. The Principal Investigators of specific projects will liaise with the Research Group Lead for support and sharing of information as required, and to solicit potential collaborating researchers from other jurisdictions. Research project results, lessons learned, and best practice will be presented at the annual meeting and other e-communication strategy when appropriate.
