Sixteen teams of researchers and research users from across BC have been funded in MSFHR's second Convening & Collaborating (C2) competition.

Designed to foster collaboration between researchers and research users such as health care professionals, policy makers and patients, the C2 Program supports teams to carry out collaborative activities that promote the use of research evidence in practice, policy and further research.

The 16 teams will work on projects such as developing an action plan to increase physical activity in Northern BC, and establishing a First Nations Mental Health and Wellness Opioid Use Network to work towards a community-informed approach to prevent further harm due to opioid use.

More information and a full list of award recipients is available on the MSFHR website.
