Health Canada is seeking information on the utilization of recommendations resulting from reports aimed at improving the workplaces of health professionals. Toward this end, the Health Policy Research Program has recently posted at http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/iacb-dgiac/arad-draa/english/rmdd/rfp/rfp015.html a Request for Letters of Intent on Quality Workplaces for Health Professionals: Research on Knowledge Utilization.
Health Canada is seeking primary research with the following specific objectives: (1) to study the dissemination results of the reports by surveying the users of the research; (2) to study various jurisdictions (provincial/regional governments) and health-care workplaces that have or have not adopted and implemented the current evidence to policy and practice; and (3) to understand the factors which affect the adoption and implementation of recommendations (i.e., barriers, enablers) as well as the process by which these recommendations were applied.
The deadline for receipt of applications is May 7, 2003.
The Health Policy Research Program, administered by the Research Management and Dissemination Division, Applied Research and Analysis Directorate, Information, Analysis and Connectivity Branch, funds research that contributes to an evidence base for Health Canada's policy decisions.
