Partnerships for health

Manitoba researchers aim to help build a better health-care system

Advances in the delivery of health care come about in many different ways.

In some cases, improvements can occur through the development of new drugs or surgical techniques. In other cases, they can be attributed to changes in the systems used to deliver care.

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research and Research Manitoba understand that both of these approaches can make important contributions to the ongoing effort to improve care.

As a result, they have joined forces through the Partnerships for Health System Improvement (PHSI) program. Launched in 2007, the program is designed to support researchers and decision-makers interested in conducting applied and policy-relevant health systems and services research that strengthens this country's health-care system.

Manitoba researchers eligible for the program are supported by grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Canada's primary funding body for health research, and Research Manitoba, which supports provincial researchers working in the fields of health, natural sciences, social sciences, engineering and the humanities.

This special report, sponsored by Research Manitoba, highlights some of the work being carried out by provincial researchers under the Partnerships for Health System Improvement program.
