The MSFHR Reach Program is designed to bring together researchers and research users to support the dissemination of research evidence, within the context of related knowledge, to facilitate its effective uptake and potential to impact health and care.
The program is part of MSFHR's refreshed suite of funding opportunities, designed in response to specific needs identified through conversations with key stakeholders.
Reach Program objectives:
- Support researchers and research users to co-develop events, activities, and/or tools to share research findings.
- Disseminate research evidence beyond the normal researcher peer group to reach audiences who can directly use the knowledge.
- Build knowledge translation capacity, experience and skills in BC’s research and health professional trainees.
- Award term: up to 12 months.
MSFHR’s Reach Program and awards are independent from REACH BC, an online provincial platform that connects British Columbians with health research opportunities. MSFHR does provide support to REACH BC through its $10 million commitment to the BC SUPPORT Unit.
