Grants of up to $75,000 to Newfoundland and Labrador researchers across the jurisdiction and nonresident researchers (focusing on Newfoundland and Labrador) to conduct patient-oriented research with a focus on applied health research and patient data. Applicants wishing to address research priorities should call their respective regional health authorities.
NL SUPPORT has a mandate to support applied health research and training in the province, both directly through the allocation of grants and funding for trainees, and indirectly by attracting funding from external granting agencies.
This program is aimed primarily at research activity initiated by investigators resident in Newfoundland and Labrador, though non-resident researchers may apply if their proposed projects include patient-oriented research with a focus on Newfoundland and Labrador.
Partnership with co-investigators based elsewhere is also encouraged and supported, particularly partnerships among SPOR disease-focused Networks and other jurisdictional SUPPORT Units.
The provincial Regional Health Authorities have identified the following research priorities for the healthcare system:
- Early recovery after surgery – Eastern Health
- Test ordering patterns for Diagnostic Imaging – Eastern Health
- Appropriateness of choice of surgical procedure, was the least invasive method employed?- Eastern Health
- Bonavista Peninsula primary health care redesign evaluation – Eastern Health
- Information management system for diabetes for Labrador-Grenfell Health
- Information management system to enhance response in cases of suicidal risk in Labrador- Grenfell Health
- Tracking system for management of TB in Labrador–Grenfell Health
However, this Grants Competition is open to any and all patient-oriented research projects, no matter the field or focus. Applicants are not required to address one or more of the above in their proposals, though such projects may be given priority.
