SHRF is pleased to announce the latest recipients of Collaborative Innovation Development grants. Thirteen teams were awarded in the 2017-18 competition. The purpose of this funding is to foster creativity, novelty and innovation in collaborative research that has potential to benefit the health of Saskatchewan residents.
Some of the health challenges these teams are addressing include: exploring access, needs and challenges of Indigenous palliative care in Saskatchewan; testing a new electroencephalogram (EEG) technology with a cell phone for development of a telehealth epilepsy clinic; using wheat grains as a tool for the prevention and management of type-2 diabetes; and testing the effectiveness and feasibility of Saskatchewan’s first chronic disease management intervention program for children with congenital heart disease.
