As part of our commitment to facilitating research relationships between patients, researchers, healthcare providers, decision-makers, and other stakeholders, we are inviting applications for Patient-Oriented Research (POR) Team Assist grants. Team Assist grants are intended to fund planning and pre-grant activities to inform future patient-oriented research projects.
These grants will:
- Facilitate the formation of multi-disciplinary POR research teams
- Promote collaboration amongst stakeholders and remove barriers to engagement
- Support patients to provide input on priorities for health research
- Enable teams to submit strong POR applications to future competitions
In addition to planning and coordination of meetings, funds will be available for catering for an engagement opportunity or workshop; renting meeting space for public fora; and compensation of patient partners or physicians to attend brainstorming sessions. Team Assist grants cannot be used to fund teams that are not patient-oriented.
