Canada, Australia and New Zealand establish a new research partnership – Australian Health Workforce Institute – 20 March 2012

“Ottawa (March 20, 2012) – The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Australian Primary Health Care Research Institute (APHCRI) at the Australian National University and the Health Research Council of New Zealand (HRC NZ) are partnering to fund research on innovative models of Community-based Primary Healthcare (CBPHC). As part of CIHR’s Signature Initiative, funded teams will examine how to better prevent and manage chronic disease, as well as improve access to care for vulnerable populations.”

Knowledge to Action: An End-of-Grant Knowledge Translation Casebook – Canadian Institutes of Health Research

pdf

“Foreword

New knowledge emerging from research holds great potential to expand horizons and create significant impact. Knowledge translation (KT) is about harnessing that potential and bridging the gap between what we know and what we do.

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) views KT as an essential component in improving the health of Canadians and has made it one of the cornerstones of its mandate. It is by moving research into action that the true benefits of our investment in health research can be realized.

CIHR has identified two broad categories of knowledge translation. The first, integrated KT, is an effective way of doing research that involves collaboration between researchers and knowledge users at every stage of the research process – from shaping the research question, to interpreting the results, to disseminating the research findings into practice. This co-production of research increases the likelihood that the results of a project will be relevant to end-users, thereby improving the possibility of uptake and application.

The compilation of case studies found in this publication concerns itself with the second and equally important category of knowledge translation, end-of-grant KT. End-of-grant KT refers to the dissemination of findings generated from research once a project is completed, depending on the extent to which there are mature findings appropriate for dissemination. Researchers who undertake traditional dissemination activities such as publishing in peer-reviewed journals and presenting their research at conferences and workshops are engaging in end-of-grant knowledge translation.”

Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research: A discussion paper for a 10-year plan to change health care using the levers of research – Canadian Institutes of Health Research – February 2010

Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research: A discussion paper for a 10-year plan to change health care using the levers of research – Canadian Institutes of Health Research – February 2010

“This discussion paper drafted by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) proposes the following nationwide Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research as a broad outline for consultation. Patient-oriented research refers to the continuum ranging from the initial human studies of a new drug or device to research evaluating the implementation of simple or complex interventions in the health-care system. The proposed Strategy includes the evaluation of new and current diagnostic approaches, treatments, devices and practices (often referred to as clinical research), as well as the synthesis, dissemination and integration of this new knowledge into the health-care system. A major focus will be to compare new discoveries with existing therapies to determine which interventions are most beneficial.”   …continues
