The Canadian Patient Safety Institute, Accreditation Canada, The Canadian Home Care Association (CHCA), Patients for Patient Safety Canada (PFPSC), and the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario (RNAO) are jointly launching a call for proposals for a small scale study to be completed by July 31 2017.
The 2016 call for commissioned research seeks to support the reduction in harm that occurs during transitions in care from hospital-based care to home care by identifying (1) how organizations can best monitor interorganization transitions to ensure that they are both safe and person-and family centered (2) patient safety indicators (organizational, process and outcome) that organizations can monitor to ensure that person-and-family-centered continuum of care is safe at transition and (3) best practices in the field and/or high performing organizations which have effective evidence based person-and-family-centered, interorganization processes and measures that advance patient safety at transition.
The funding partners will offer $50,000 to one researcher this fiscal year (March 31, 2016 – July 31, 2017). This opportunity is open to researchers in disciplines both from within and outside of health sciences who have a demonstrated interest in patient safety. Applicants must hold a PhD (in any field), or MD, or a Masters in a health science field, and be associated with a Canadian University or not-for-profit organization that can accept and administer the funding on their behalf.
