MSFHR Blogs

   

MSFHR publishes two blogs: Forward Thinking and KT Encounters plus occasional guest blogs.

Forward Thinking, MSFHR's staff blog, examines what it takes to be a responsive and responsible research funder and explores the world in which research funders operate today. 

KT Encounters is a series of guest blog posts which is designed to challenge our thinking and deepen our understanding about knowledge translation (KT), the broad range of activities meant to improve the use of research evidence in practice, policy and further research.


A new partnership opportunity is strengthening the evidence base for health research funding, enabling MSFHR to maximize the impact of our investments on behalf of British Columbians.

KT Encounters: Dr. Davina Banner explains how working with patient research partners has taught her some vital lessons about patient-oriented research.

Lori Last and Amy Noise introduce the science of storytelling and how to apply the principles of storytelling to demonstrate the value of health research and health research funding.

Public and patient engagement in health care, policy and research is key to driving health system transformation, and ultimately, better health outcomes, but what is a health funder's role?

MSFHR's Dr. Julia Langton provides an overview of how we approach research impact assessment at the Foundation, and the tools in our assessment toolbox.

KT Encounters blog: Dr. Sarah Munro explains how shared decision-making between health care providers and patients can support patient centred care. 

MSFHR's Dr. Les Grad provides a window into how we design, develop and evaluate our programs to ensure they achieve their goals and realize their desired impact.
