What is OPEN?

 The Ottawa Practice Enhancement Network (OPEN) is the University of Ottawa Department of Family Medicine's learning network of like-minded family practitioners in the region who have come together to expand their knowledge of, and share their experience with, strategies to advance primary care. OPEN supports a culture of enquiry and action-oriented scholarship that is responsive to regional needs. 


Simone Dahrouge, PhD, OPEN Director


OPEN is one of 13 Canadian Networks that are members of the Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network (CPCSSN).


OPEN is one of seven learning networks across Ontario who have joined forces to form POPLAR (the Primary care Ontario Practice Based Learning and Research Network).

POPLAR has received the OCFP and OMA endorsement, and is working with the CPSO to ensure our practices have the support they need to succeed.
