Vision & Goals

The vision of the GTA-OBS Network is to become an international leader in research, best practice and advocacy in women’s and infants’ health by leveraging the power inherent in a GTA-wide collaborative approach.

The goals of the GTA-OBS Network are the following:

  • To improve quality and standards of care: we will create and implement shared standards and guidelines to improve patient-centred quality of care and, ultimately, the longitudinal health of women and babies across the region with important world-wide implications;
  • To conduct collaborative, multi-site clinical research: we will design and conduct novel randomized controlled studies as well as studies that will leverage existing databases such as BORN, ICES, CNN;
  • To develop a shared advocacy: we will advocate on behalf of women and babies in Ontario to influence policy here and worldwide;
  • To promote knowledge sharing: we will foster professional and practice development among all members.
