CIHR Operating Grant: SPOR PIHCI Network – Knowledge Synthesis Grant

The pan-Canadian SPOR Network in Primary and Integrated Health Care Innovations is a key CIHR initiative under the Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research and the Community-Based Primary Health Care Signature Initiative. More information on this Network can be found on the Pan-Canadian SPOR Network in Primary and Integrated Health Care Innovations website.

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support knowledge syntheses and scoping reviews, which are the cornerstone of knowledge translation. They transform vast libraries of scientific literature into knowledge that is reliable, relevant and readable for knowledge users (individuals who are likely to be able to use research results to make informed decisions about health policies, programs and/or practices). Research questions should be driven by the needs of policy makers to have evidence-informed decision making.

Deadline: July 26, 2016
