Funding for research to improve patient care
Under the Enhancing Health Care awards program, grants of up to $75,000 each will be available for projects that address areas of concern identified by the Cameron Inquiry. Projects of up to three years’ duration may be funded if they apply to patient care, including but not limited to cancer care, within the province’s health care system. Applications may involve research on clinical questions or on the organization, administration, or provision of health care. They may also involve the evidence-based design, implementation, and evaluation of innovative projects for improving the organization and quality of care.
Who can apply?
Applicants must be employees or students of Memorial University or employees of any of the province’s Regional Health Authorities or of any other non-profit organization based in this province. Research teams may include co-applicants or collaborators who do not meet these criteria. Collaboration across institutional, disciplinary and provincial boundaries is encouraged. Where appropriate, teams are encouraged to include decision makers from within the provincial health care system and administration who are in a position to facilitate the uptake of the project’s expected findings.
Special consideration for smaller grants of up to $25,000 each for up to two years will be given to projects submitted by Principal Applicants who qualify as emerging researchers (defined as applicants who have never received a research grant of more than $25,000).
