Welcome to our ITPCRG wiki! - Bienvenue sur le wiki du ITPCRG!

ITPCRG is an acronym for the Information Technology Primary Care Research Group.


Inaugurated in 2007, the Information Technology Primary Care Research Group (ITPCRG) includes Gillian Bartlett, PhD, Martin Dawes, MD, PhD, Roland M. Grad, MD, MSc,  Pierre Pluye, MD, PhD, and Charo Rodriguez, MD, PhD. ITPRCG promotes and encourages research, development and teaching of health informatics in primary care. The purpose of ITPCRG is to support research and research capacity-building for addressing complex health informatics questions from decision-makers, information providers, knowledge users, policy-makers and researchers using multiple methods (qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods). ITPCRG researchers supervise graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, in particular MSc students enrolled in the ‘Family Medicine’ option of the ‘Experimental Medicine’ program.


For instance, ITPCRG researchers developed and validated the Information Assessment Method (IAM) that systematically documents a health professional’s reflection on the relevance, cognitive impact, use and health outcomes of information objects delivered by or retrieved from electronic knowledge resources (http://iam2009.pbworks.com). IAM helps document a professionals’ reflective learning, which is a basis for CME. IAM may enhance continuing education (reflective learning), evaluation of resources, and two-way knowledge exchange between information users and providers. The Canadian Pharmacists Association, and Practice Solutions, a Canadian Medical Association company, are licensees of IAM. Currently, more than 3,500 Canadian physicians routinely use IAM for assessing InfoPOEMs® delivered as daily email. For each InfoPOEM® appraised using IAM, members of the College of Family Physicians of Canada earn 0.1 MainPro M1 Continuing Medical Education credit (up to 15 credits per year). According to our literature review and environmental scan, this CME policy is unique as it recognizes brief self-directed e-learning activities in a ‘push’ context.
