Fostering  Innovation in Healthcare

Patient-focused  thinking, longer-term results  

This partnership with CIHR’s Strategy for Patient Oriented Research (SPOR) funds innovative patient-oriented research, aimed at enhancing the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery. Five successful projects have been identified under this program for funding between 2013 and 2016.

The program was designed to focus on short and longer-term patient impacts and health outcomes, such as patient experience, safety and quality of life. Results of the research will strengthen provincial and territorial healthcare systems in a way that aligns with patient values.
