The Implementation Research Grant program will:
  • allow applications from the following areas of prostate cancer research (CIHR Pillars 3 & 4)
    • Health services, including research with the goal of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of health professionals and the health care system, through changes to practice and policy.
    • Population and public health, with the goal of improving the health of the Canadian population, or of defined sub-populations, through a better understanding of the ways in which social, cultural, environmental, occupational and economic factors determine health status.
