Opportunity to reinforce POR and LHS capacities

The Unit’s program

The targeted grant program to improve care trajectories is a critical component of the Unit’s activities.

The goal of the program is to support research teams in improving care and service trajectories through targeted grants. In line with the priority needs identified by the organizations, the support offered to the participating teams helps to improve the quintuple aim for an identified trajectory.

The targeted grant program represents an opportunity to strengthen research and implementation capacity in the health and social services network.

The collaboration between organizations such as the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec, the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé and the Unit allows for a better understanding of care and service trajectories in order to support transformation and allow for the improvement of practices in different areas. The Unit’s teams, recognized for their specific expertise in several fields, will accompany and support the teams throughout their project. We are currently working on the development of the new program.
