MSFHR’s new Implementation Science Team (IST) Program is designed to address a gap in understanding how research findings and other evidence-based practices are taken up to ultimately improve health and health care in BC.

Consisting of two phases, a Development Grant and a Project Grant, the program supports teams of researchers and research users to plan, conduct and study the implementation of proven health interventions to improve the quality and effectiveness of health, health services and care in BC.

For phase one, MSFHR has awarded Development Grants to support 10 teams with their project development as they work towards submitting full and comprehensive Project Grant applications. The teams are working on projects that address BC’s health system priorities and range from chronic disease care in Haida Gwaii, to at-home cervical cancer screening in northern BC, and peer support for adults with Type 1 diabetes in rural and remote parts of BC’s southern interior.
