Core Indicators Project Management:
Core Indicators Work Group
The Core Indicators Work Group (CIWG) is the central steering committee for the Core Indicators Project, responsible for all Core Indicators products, administration, and strategic activities
The CIWG also co-ordinates the activities of the Core Indicator Subgroups, which develop and revise the indicators, datasource and gaps relevant to their public health topic specializeation.
The current priority for the overall Core Indicators project is alignment with the modernized Ontario Public Health Standards, and migration of all Core Indicator products to the new website; this work involves all subgroups in the project.
- Project founded in February 1998 to address the need for measurement standardization between public health units.
- Originally called the Provincial Health Indicators Work Group (PHIWG).
- Received targeted funding in 2008-2009 from the Public Health Agency of Canada to develop indicators for chronic disease and risk factor surveillance.
This working group has limited recruitment, as the CIWG is comprised of: the project chair(s); leads of the indicator development subgroups; and volunteers working on areas of strategic focus.
If you are in interested in contributing to the Core Indicators project, please volunteer here.
