Other: SPOR Primary Care Network

The Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) is a national coalition of federal, provincial and territorial partner, including patients, health authorities, academic health centres, charities, philanthropic organizations, private sector, and others, dedicated to the integration of research into care.
The aim of this funding opportunity is to support the development of a national SPOR Primary Care Network that will facilitate the reach, adaptation, and accessibility of successful patient-oriented primary and integrated health care innovations to new sites, new settings, and/or new populations. The Network will mobilize knowledge to inform and transform practice, clinical care, policy, and/or decision-making toward more optimal and equitable health outcomes. Through research, training, mentorship, collaborations and partnerships, the Network will build capacity for the ongoing application of patient-oriented primary and integrated health care knowledge.
