SPOR Comparative Program and Policy Analysis Grant

Our SPOR Quick Strike research team partnered with stakeholders across Canada in 2016 to conduct a Comparative Policy Analysis that was funded through CIHR and matching partners. Our team is engaged in comparing current programs and the structures and policies in Canadian provinces and territories that govern primary health care, community-based social services, public health and community supports required for children and seniors, namely children/youth with high functional needs and community-dwelling older adults experiencing functional decline. I co-lead the research on children/youth.


We are currently in the dissemination phase, which includes writing papers/briefs, delivering presentations, and hosting monthly webinars to share the findings. I am a Co-Principal Investigator of this pan-Canadian two-year study funded by CIHR and other matching partners totaling $243,750.
