Scientists receive Convening and Collaborating Awards
CHÉOS Scientists have received research funding through the inaugural MSFHR Convening and Collaborating (C2) Award competition.
Awards will allow researchers to develop and use their findings in practice and policy and to guide future projects through knowledge exchange. CHÉOS Scientist Dr. Rita McCracken is a team member on a grant that will be used to host the Centre for Health Services and Policy Research’s annual health policy conference, and Drs. Amy Salmon and Joseph Puyat are research co-leads on a project that will aim to improve the understanding of the role of iron in fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD).
The St. Paul’s Foundation wrote a story about CHÉOS Scientist Dr. Eugenia Oviedo-Joekes and her work in treatments for opioid addiction and the Study to Assess Longer-term Opioid Medication Effectiveness.
Leslie Love, Senior Project Manager for CHÉOS, gives us a great introduction to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines in the second installment of our Clinical Research 101 series. The recurring series takes an in-depth look at key steps and tips for navigating the clinical research process.
Walk 10 Blocks, a new app designed to promote physical activity in older adults, was profiled in the Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute newsletter.
CHÉOS Scientist Dr. Linda Li and colleague Dr. Teresa Liu-Ambrose created the app in conjunction with patient and consumer groups. “We’re very proud of this collaboration. It’s a perfect example of how researchers getting together with patient and public groups can come up with innovative ideas and actually make things happen,” said Dr. Li.
