Under the Transitions in Care (TiC) multi-Institute strategic initiative, CIHR has designed a new funding opportunity to address improved health and wellness by transforming health systems for optimized outcomes for individuals experiencing transitions in care. The Team Grants are component 4 under the CIHR TiC multi-Institute initiative.
The TiC Team Grants will offer pragmatic solutions to problems associated with transitions in care from a clinical, health care or health system perspective. The funding opportunity will use a partnerships approach where multidisciplinary/interdiscipl inary research teams will identify ways to develop, implement, evaluate and/or scale and spread evidence into practice to optimize transitions in care outcomes within two or more of the TiC primary focus areas.
The Team Grants will require partnership with the health system. In addition, projects integrating eHealth innovation will also require a health technology partner.
The total CIHR amount that will be available for this funding opportunity is $9.6M, enough to fund approximately ten (10) grants. This amount may increase if additional funding partners participate. Applicants will be required to secure, by the application deadline, partnership contributions equivalent to a minimum of 30% of the total grant amount requested. Of that partnered amount, a minimum of half (i.e., 15%) of the amount must be a cash contribution.
