Abstract: The Population Studies Research Network of Cancer Care Ontario hosted a strategic planning workshop to establish an agenda for a prevention intervention research program in Ontario, including priority topics for investigation and design considerations. The two-day workshop included: presentations on background papers developed to facilitate participants' preparation for and discussions in the workshop; keynote presentations on intervention research concerning primary prevention of chronic diseases, design and study implementation considerations; a dedicated session on critical and creative thinking to stimulate participation and discussion topics; breakout groups to identify, discuss and present study ideas, designs, implementation considerations; and a consensus process to discuss and identify recommendations for research priorities and next steps. The retreat yielded the following recommendations: 1) develop an intervention research agenda that includes working with existing large-scale cohorts; 2) develop an intervention research agenda that includes novel research designs that could target individuals or groups; and 3) develop an intervention research agenda in which studies collect data on costs, define stakeholders, and ensure clear strategies for stakeholder engagement and knowledge transfer. The Population Studies Research Network will develop options from these recommendations and release a call for proposals in 2014 for intervention research pilot projects that reflect these recommendations. Pilot projects will be evaluated based on their fit with the retreat's recommendations, and their potential to scale up to full studies and application in practice. = Le reseau de recherche " Etude de la population " d'Action Cancer Ontario a organise un atelier de planification strategique afin de fixer l'agenda d'un programme de recherche d'intervention sur la prevention en Ontario, y compris les themes prioritaires a aborder et les elements a considerer dans le plan d'etude. L'atelier de deux jours incluait : des presentations sur les documents de base elabores pour faciliter la preparation des participants et leurs discussions durant l'atelier; des allocutions sur la recherche d'intervention axee sur la prevention primaire des maladies chroniques, le plan d'etude et les elements a considerer dans la mise en oeuvre de l'etude; une seance consacree a la pensee critique et creatrice pour stimuler la participation et les sujets de discussion; la formation de petits groupes pour cerner, discuter et presenter des idees d'etude, des plans d'etude et des elements a considerer pour la mise en oeuvre; et un exercice de consensus pour discuter des priorites de recherche et de la suite des choses et formuler des recommandations. Ces journees de reflexion ont produit les recommandations suivantes : 1) elaborer un agenda pour la recherche d'intervention incluant l'utilisation des cohortes a grande echelle existantes; 2) elaborer un agenda pour la recherche d'intervention incluant des plans de recherche novateurs qui pourraient cibler des particuliers ou des groupes; et 3) elaborer un agenda pour la recherche d'intervention avec des etudes pour recueillir des donnees sur les couts, identifier les acteurs du milieu et presenter des strategies claires pour la mobilisation des acteurs et le transfert des connaissances. Le reseau de recherche " Etude de la population " formulera des options a partir de ces recommandations et lancera un appel de propositions en 2014 pour des projets-pilotes de recherche d'intervention qui refletent ces recommandations. Les projets-pilotes seront evalues selon leur degre de correspondance avec les recommandations de l'atelier, leur potentiel de transformation en etudes completes et leurs possibilites de mise en pratique.
