2. to highlight the importance of ‘upstream’ evidence on validity and utility as the foundation for effective approaches to implementation
3. to identify strategies to integrate research conducted at different points in the precision medicine ‘pipeline’

AUDIENCE:
The workshop is open to all interested in precision medicine and its effective integration in Canadian health care, including
• health services and policy researchers, particularly those with interest in implementation science
• health technology assessment researchers and analysts
• clinicians with an interest in precision medicine
• basic science researchers in precision medicine
• precision medicine research funding agencies, particularly Genome Canada and regional Genomes, CIHR
~No registration required~

PROGRAM:
1. Welcome, introductions, goals of the meeting 
2. Implementation science and precision medicine (Anne-Marie Laberge/Brenda Wilson)
3. How implementation issues are currently integrated into Genome Canada’s precision health large scale applied health projects (Anne-Marie Laberge)
4. Problems with the precision medicine ‘pipeline’ (Brenda Wilson)
5. Facilitated discussion: are these problems real, and how to begin to address them in the Canadian research context?
