If you would like a say on the future direction of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), including funding priorities and organization, it’s important to complete one or more of six online surveys that will inform the CIHR’s strategic planning process by next Friday, June 28.
The more input the CIHR receives from family physicians and primary care researchers and stakeholders, the higher the chances of family medicine and primary care have for being heard!
Each of the surveys covers a different area, but all are relevant to family medicine and primary care research. You may complete one or as many as you wish and encourage your colleagues to do the same.
Suggestions from the CFPC
The CFPC encourages members to respond to the CIHR surveys to advocate for more emphasis on and funding for primary care research. There is more information from Dr. Francine Lemire in the latest CEO Blog.
If you need some ideas or direction for your submissions to the surveys, the CFPC has also identified high-level research priorities in family medicine and primary care in the Section of Researchers’ Blueprint 2 2018-23.
It’s important for family physicians and primary care researchers to be heard, so please respond to one or more surveys by June 28.
