Ontario Drug Policy Research Network (ODPRN) Student Training Program
This program allows students to work with a group of expert researchers across five Ontario universities to conduct drug policy research projects. Other program components include webinars and faculty presentations on their projects and common research methodologies, respectively. Besides the funded students, we have had over 60 unfunded students involved with at least one program component over the last 4 years. Various resources have been developed and are available to students in the program, including guides to common methodology, ICES database resources and manuscript/report writing resources specific to ODPRN. We also have research minutes that are tailored to patients, clinician and policy makers publically available on our website.
