Applied Health Research (AHRQ) Questions

 

Applied Health Research Questions (AHRQs) are a mandated and integral part of the INSPIRE-PHC Program.

Knowledge Users are invited to ask questions that the INSPIRE-PHC researchers might be able to answer through a briefing note, technical/research report, or research project. A "Knowledge User Form" is submitted to the INSPIRE-PHC Program. A researcher is then chosen to work with the knowledge user to answer the question posed. A timeline and methodology is mutually agreed upon and a knowledge translation strategy is put in place (as desired).

Please review the MOHLTC guidelines for the AHRQ process for more information.

As well, the Knowledge User Form is available. if you are interested in submitting a project. This is an open process and the questions and responses will be made available on the INSPIRE-PHC Website.

To date, the following AHRQs have been received and undertaken by the INSPIRE-PHC Program:
