Team Grant: Transitions in Care - Phase 2

The goal of the Transitions in Care (TiC) CIHR multi-Institute initiative is to improve the health and well-being of all peoples in Canada by supporting research that transforms the health system to optimize the outcomes of patients experiencing transitions in care. Since the launch of the initiative in 2018, 53 projects have been funded across Canada using a number of different funding mechanisms.

The focus of this funding opportunity is to support inter-disciplinary teams that are poised and ready to optimize health outcomes during transitions in care. The grants will provide support to co-develop, implement, evaluate, and equitably spread and/or scale (share) pragmatic solutions to challenges associated with transitions in care from a clinical, health care or health system perspective.
