The Canadian Institutes of Health Research's new Evidence-Informed Healthcare Renewal (EIHR) initiative will support researchers and decision makers to work together to advance the current state of knowledge, generate novel and creative solutions, and translate evidence for uptake into policy and practice to strengthen Canada's healthcare systems.
The EIHR initiative focuses on three priority areas:
- financing and funding models;
- health system sustainability; and
- governance and accountability.
Innovation in these areas will require contributions from a wide range of disciplines and methodological approaches. Health services and health policy research would greatly benefit from contributions from economics, political science, sociology, philosophy, law, and other relevant fields, and from the involvement of policy makers, decision makers and healthcare providers.
The EIHR initiative's second set of funding opportunities including, Partnerships for Health System Improvement grants, Policy Analysis grants, Advancing Theories and Methodological Innovations grants, and Fellowship and Post-doctoral Research Awards, will support innovative research that will advance the current state of knowledge and contribute to evidence-informed decision-making within EIHR's three priority areas.
Note: The Advancing Theories and Methodological Innovation grants will be launched in late July.
