SPOR Network in Primary and Integrated Health Care Innovations: Saskatchewan LOI
Last Updated: August 28, 2014
The purpose of this Network grant is to develop a collaborative network of researchers, physicians, community members, and policy-makers that will focus on generating new evidence in primary and integrated health care effectiveness, efficiency and access across the care spectrum. The Saskatchewan team includes researchers, physicians, and policy makers who will work together to improve health equity more specifically in indigenous and rural areas, with a focus on prevention, and how to better provide services to patients across their life spans (early childhood to older adults). The network will allow researchers in different areas to come together to focus on integrating primary health care and social determinants across urban and rural areas and indigenous peoples to identify specific issues facing individuals in Saskatchewan regarding their primary care.
Goals / Outcomes: This LOI will allow development of a full application for the Saskatchewan network to be a member of the Pan-Canadian SPOR Network in Primary and Integrated Health Care Interventions.
