Western receives $2M in federal funding for iHEAL program

Western University has received $2M in funding from the Government of Canada to extend its iHEAL intervention program and determine whether the model could be used in other settings. Through the iHEAL program, specially trained nurses provide support to those who have experienced intimate partner violence in a way that complements local supports and services. The federal funding will be used to determine whether the iHEAL model could be sustainably used for intervention in different service settings. “[E]ffective interventions don’t necessarily translate well into real-world settings without careful planning,” said iHEAL project lead Marilyn Ford-Gilboe. “With this funding, we aim to better understand how iHEAL can be offered as a successful and sustainable program across different types of service settings and in ways that are inclusive for women of many backgrounds.” Western| London Free Press Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
