OCHSU launches IMPACT – Child Health Awards

The Ontario Child Health SUPPORT Unit (OCHSU) has issued a call for Proposals for the newly created IMPACT – Child Health Awards.

These awards – created to address gaps in priority research areas in child health – are designed to bring together diverse stakeholders – patients, clinicians, researchers, policy makers, knowledge users, industry, and other health sector participants – to develop and implement research activities that will improve child health outcomes and advance the health system. These strategic awards, directly aligned with Ontario’s Action Plan for Health Care, will support patient-oriented research projects that are Innovative, Measurable, Patient-oriented, Appropriate, Collaborative and Transformative across three priority areas:

  • Prevention
  • High burden child health care in the hospital, community and at home
  • Child health system integration, sustainability and patient safety

Letters of Intent (LOI) must be submitted electronically to Impact.ChildHealth@sickkids.ca by 5:00 pm EST on November 27, 2015. Applicants will receive confirmation of receipt of their submission by the next business day. French language forms are available on request.

Submission guidelines can be found here, with further details available at IMPACT – Child Health Awards.
