Quality of Life Research Grants have been created to support quality of life cancer research that has the potential to make a significant impact on the burden of disease in patients, survivors and caregivers. These grants are intended to explore psychosocial, survivorship, symptom control, supportive care and end-of-life issues, research gaps, needs and opportunities, or models for survivorship care. The grants are meant to accelerate and focus the knowledge gained from scientific findings, in the short or long term, into outcomes that will result in the reduced burden or enhanced quality of life for cancer patients in Canada and elsewhere.
The goal of this grant program is to support and accelerate research addressing the creation and application of new knowledge relevant to improving quality of life (as described above). The program is particularly interested in research that has the potential for practical applications within the domain of knowledge translation. Applications can be from multidisciplinary teams or individual investigators. Multidisciplinary collaboration is encouraged.
Examples of projects that may be appropriate for this grant program include, but are not limited to:
- qualitative or quantitative studies
- case control or cohort studies
- clinical studies
- health systems, health economics and health services research
- methodology development
- measurement tools development
- efficacy or effectiveness studies of novel interventions
