CHIR Operating Grant: Advancing Theoretical and Methodological Innovations (2011)

The CIHR Institutes of Aging (IA), Population and Public Health (IPPH), and Health Services and Policy Research (IHSPR) have identified the need to further strengthen the theories, conceptual frameworks, methods and tools underpinning the conduct of interdisciplinary health research. Guided by different disciplinary traditions, researchers use a range of theories, frameworks, methods and tools to understand, observe and/or measure phenomena. Innovations need to be informed by the best available scientific methods emanating from a broad range of disciplines. Whether we seek to better theorize how policy interventions adapt to context, or to strengthen our approaches to analyzing and reporting data to inform health decision-making, we need to further enhance research's contribution to such efforts. The total amount available for this funding opportunity is $3,200,000, enough to fund approximately 16 grants. This amount may increase if additional funding partners participate.
