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 create research links;
  • to identify funding opportunities and research gaps;
  • to work towards developing greater overall capacity to conduct research on chronic disease; and
  • to promote evidence 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.

Upcoming meetings

NLCAHR is currently working with representatives of the Depratment of Health and Community Services to develop an agenda of activities for the group for Fall 2019.  Please stay tuned for updates.
