MSFHR is partnering with Arthritis Research Canada to co-develop and host a series of monthly expert-led, beginner-level KT training webinars with the goal of developing a sustainable resource for researchers and trainees to learn knowledge and skills that will enable them to develop KT practice in their work.

The MSFHR C2 Awards build capacity for the development and use of research evidence in practice, policy and further research by promoting knowledge exchange between health researchers and research users. 

MSFHR Scholar Ziba Vaghri is leading a new initiative to provide accessible and systematic reporting on government policies and processes that impact children.

Guidelines for both programs will be available on MSFHR’s website in early September, with applications set to open in early October. 

The webinar will help administrators who are responsible for approving applications at BC host institutions understand the approval process and workflow in MSFHR ApplyNet. 

A free public forum on October 4 will focus on how research is moving towards a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. An expert panel will break down the current state of dementia research, including the crucial role played by individuals and families living with the disease.
