Researchers at the Contextualized Health Research Synthesis Program of NLCAHR have published two new decision-support products on topics identified as priorities by our provincial health system partners. The first, a Rapid Evidence Report, provides an overview of evidence on palliative care approaches for people with chronic disease. Findings from thnis study were disseminated at a meeting with provincial health system stakeholders on April 25, 2018. The second study was a Snapshot Report that provided a jurisdictional scan of psychiatrist-led rural and remote mental health and addictions programs that have been implemented elsewhere in Canada. This report was requested by our health system partners to help inform the action plan laid out in the All-Party Committee on Mental Health's report: Towards Recovery: A Vision for a Renewed Mental Health and Addictions System for Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH) has just released a new report on dialysis modalities for end-stage renal disease. Their latest findings validate a report published by CHRSP in 2008 and updated again in 2013 and support approaches to home dialysis that are used in this province.
NLCAHR's Annual Report for 2016-2017 is now available online.
