Join the Ontario Genetic Advisory Committee - deadline Sept 6th

Health Quality Ontario (HQO)
The Ontario Genetic Advisory Committee, a proposed sub-committee of the Ontario Health Technology Advisory Committee, will review health technology assessments produced by Health Quality Ontario and advise on the clinical utility, validity, and value for money of new and existing genetic and genomic tests in Ontario.
The Ontario Health Technology Advisory Committee is appointed by the Health Quality Ontario Board of Directors and makes recommendations to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care on which tests should be publicly funded.
We are seeking membership nominations for the following individuals from across Ontario to serve as members of the proposed Ontario Genetic Advisory Committee:

Patients and Caregivers with Lived Experience: Two individuals who can provide the patient perspective and are not employed in the health care sector. Read the role description.

Expected commitment:
  • Participate in 4-8 meetings annually in Toronto, typically lasting 4 to 6 hours.
  • Commit to a three year membership.
  • Review documents circulated between meetings, and participate in occasional teleconference meetings.

For more information, please read the draft Terms of Reference for the proposed Ontario Genetic Advisory Committee.
Health Quality Ontario will be accepting applications until September 6th, 2016.
