For CHRSP Champions

About CHRSP Champions

The Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Applied Health Research is committed to its partnership with the provincial health system through our Contextualized Health Research Synthesis Program (CHRSP). Key stakeholders from the Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) and the provincial government have asked us to develop an inclusive process for working together to support evidence-informed decision making in health.

To strengthen communication linkages with CHRSP, we have recruited a group of CHRSP Champions within each RHA and the provincial government who, under the direction of the CEO/DM, facilitate the internal processes needed to support the production of locally-relevant contextualized health research syntheses.

Role of the CHRSP Champions

Each of the four RHAs, the DHCS, and the DCSSD has identified one or more CHRSP Champions who:

  • Assist the CEO/ DM in completing CHRSP-related activities
  • Provide a link between the CHRSP Planning Team and their respective organizations
  • Lead the consultation process within their organizations for identification of CHRSP topics/questions
  • Assist in disseminating communications from CHRSP to their organizations
  • Provide information to the CHRSP Planning Team to improve the program
  • Help identify team members for specific CHRSP projects
  • Assist in the dissemination of CHRSP reports
