Five teams receive funding in the KT Challenge

Providence Health Care and Vancouver Coastal Health are delighted to collaborate on the PHC/VCH Knowledge Translation (KT) Challenge, a regional initiative designed to support teams of clinicians who are responsible for moving evidence into practice to improve patient care.

This year, five PHC teams were funded, two of them regional projects that will be jointly funded by PHC, PHCRI and VCH Research Institute.

Michelle Carter, CNS in PHC’s Mental Health Program, responded to news of her team’s funding award: “This project is one of the first clinical practice collaborations in psychiatry between PHC and Vancouver Coastal Health — it could provide a blueprint for future regional initiatives. On top of this, our project is timely as CST is on its way. If we can come to clinical consensus on best practice, we will better be able to build the tools we need into our future-state system.” Find out more about Michelle's team's project.

The KT Challenge is run in partnership with Providence Health Care Professional Practice, Providence Health Care Research Institute, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute (VCHRI) and VCH Professional Practice, and is supported by funding from PHC, PHCRI and VCHRI.
