Project title: MHA outpatient visits for Hamilton PHU
Type of response: Rapid response
Knowledge User: Hamilton Public Health Unit
ICES Scientist: Lesley Plumptre
Summary: Information in a previous AHRQ was provided at PHU. However, Hamilton has markedly different populations and healthcare resources across different areas of the PHU. We would like to investigate counts and rates of outpatient mental health and addiction-related visits, particularly among school-aged children, to improve identification of high-risk groups and resource allocation.
