Patient-oriented research initiative involving UManitoba receives $30M

A pan-Canadian initiative called the Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) has received a $30M joint investment to support the next phase of research from the Manitoba SPOR Support for People and Patient-Oriented Research and Trials (SUPPORT) Unit. The five-year investment will be used to expand the Manitoba SPOR SUPPORT Unit, which is housed within a centre that is operated by the University of Manitoba and Shared Health. “Our work … has made patient-oriented research no longer just a concept in Canada; patients and researchers are working together to produce measurable improvements in service delivery and health-care practice across the country,” said CIHR President Dr Michael Strong. The funding is provided by the Government of Canada, the Government of Manitoba, Shared Health, and the University of Manitoba.
