Partnerships for Health System Improvement (PHSI) aims to strengthen Canada's healthcare system through collaborative, applied and policy-relevant research. PHSI is Canada's premier health services and policy research competition — and with its strong emphasis on partnerships and knowledge translation it is also a major resource for managers and policy makers who want relevant research to inform their decision-making. PHSI funds teams of decision makers and researchers to conduct applied health services and policy research. Because they participate throughout the research process the research results are more likely to be relevant to and used by decision makers. Consistent with the program's emphasis on partnerships, grants are funded through a combination of CIHR and partner funding.

The maximum amount awarded by CIHR for a single grant is $400,000 for up to three years (partnership contributions are in addition to the CIHR amount). (Please note that deadlines to submit requests to competition partners are in advance of the CIHR application deadline)
