The Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) is a national coalition of federal, provincial and territorial partners, including patients, health authorities, academic health centres, charities, philanthropic organizations, private sector, and others, dedicated to the integration of research into care. The vision for SPOR is that Canada will demonstrably improve health outcomes and enhance the health care experience for patients through the integration of evidence at all levels of the health care system.
The SPOR Networks are national, multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary networks comprising patients, health professionals, decision makers, researchers and other stakeholders.
The aim of this funding opportunity is to support the development of a national SPOR Primary Care Network that will facilitate the reach, adaptation, and accessibility of successful patient-oriented primary and integrated health care innovations to new sites, new settings, and/or new populations. The Network will mobilize knowledge to inform and transform practice, clinical care, policy, and/or decision-making toward more optimal and equitable health outcomes. Through research, training, mentorship, collaborations and partnerships, the Network will build capacity for the ongoing application of patient-oriented primary and integrated health care knowledge.
The specific objectives of this funding opportunity are to support a national Network that will:
- Facilitate, through research and partnerships, the increase in reach, adaptation, and accessibility of successful patient-oriented primary and integrated health care innovations to new sites, new settings, and/or new populations;
- Mobilize knowledge generated to inform and transform practice, clinical care, policy, and/or decision making toward optimal and equitable health outcomes;
- Build capacity for the ongoing application of patient-oriented primary and integrated health care knowledge.
The total amount available from CIHR for this funding opportunity is $10,000,000, enough to fund one grant for a total of five years.
Applicants must secure partner contributions from non-federal sources to match the total CIHR contribution at a minimum of a 1:1 ratio. Matching partner contributions can include up to 50% eligible in-kind contributions.
