Chronic Disease

The Research Exchange Group on Chronic Disease was founded in January 2013.  The group comprises educators, researchers, practitioners, and policy makers who gather monthly to discuss applied health research and policy directions on issues related to chronic disease in Newfoundland and Labrador, whether diabetes, COPD, kidney disease or other chronic conditions that have an impact on the health of our province's population.

The goals of this group are

  • to promote public engagement that will help build capacity for research on chronic disease;
  • to create research links and build collaborative research teams;
  • to identify funding opportunities and knowledge/research gaps;
  • to create a forum for knowledge exchange on health research and programming relative to chronic disease; and
  • to promote evidence that can be used to inform decisions about chronic disease in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The presentations made by the group cover a broad range of research interests, from disease prevention to policy frameworks to models of care for patients with chronic disease.
