Memorial Deadline: Wednesday 9th, October 2019

Since 2010, CIHR has invested over $584M in research projects in the areas of community-based primary health care (CBPHC) and eHealth. Throughout this timeframe, the Institute of Health Services and Policy Research (IHSPR), in partnership with several other CIHR Institutes, led two major initiatives in these areas, namely, Community-Based Primary Health Care and eHealth Innovations. Both of these initiatives had flagship programs that centered on improving health outcomes and care delivery through the development and evaluation of models of care and/or eHealth innovations.
The Institute of Health Services and Policy Research is dedicated to supporting innovative research and catalyzing the application of these research findings to policies, practice and programs that provide real-world benefit and enhance the provision of high-quality care for Canadians. However, very often funded projects and programs are implemented successfully in one jurisdiction without attention to the possibility of scaling and spreading beyond.
The goal of this funding opportunity is to support research teams to develop strategies on how to successfully adapt approaches and/or interventions that are known to improve the health of Canadians to new sites, settings, and/or populations.
