2020 Convening & Collaborating Award Recipients

MSFHR’s Convening & Collaborating (C2) Program is designed to 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.

Each successful team receives funding support for planning research programs, projects and activities that will bring researchers and research users together to address the current five BC health system priorities:

  1. enhanced access to effective primary health care
  2. services for seniors with complex medical conditions
  3. mental health/substance use care
  4. services for patients needing surgery
  5. rural and remote health-care services

The 12 successful teams are organized alphabetically. For each project, bracketed numbers indicate which BC health system priorities are being addressed.
