CBPHC Events

Annual meetings

The CBPHC Annual meetings bring together the CIHR funded CBPHC Innovation Teams and salary award recipients, including New Investigators, Applied Public Health Chairs, and Embedded Clinician Researchers, along with representatives from national health care organizations and policy leads and decision makers engaged with the initiative. The meetings provide participants with an opportunity to critically reflect on progress, achievements, and impacts arising from Innovation Team's programs of research, including capacity building and knowledge translation activities. The meetings also provide a forum for knowledge exchange, critical debate and collaboration between Teams, salary awardees, decision-makers, and partners with a common interest.

Mid-term Reporting

The CBPHC Innovation Team Grants completed mid-term reports at 2.5 years, in the fall of 2015. The focus of the mid-term reporting was designed around a common set of questions asked of all teams that were grounded in the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences research impact categories – advancing knowledge, building capacity, informing decision making, health impacts and broad social and economic impacts.
