Cancer SCN Innovation Pipeline Grant - Performance Gap Identification

Cancer SCN 2020/21 Innovation Pipeline Grant Competition. 

This competition is aligned with Alberta Health Services’ Innovation Pipeline Framework, and invests in early stage innovation in cancer in three areas of focus that include:

1.       Priorities in cancer identified through James Lind Alliance (JLA) Priority Setting Partnerships

2.       Priorities in virtual care and support for patients with cancer

3.       Priorities in appropriateness of cancer care and supports

The competition has two streams: performance gap identification, and proof-of-concept.

  • Performance gap identification projects will identify quantitative gaps within the Alberta health system and define solutions to address them. Projects must be completed within 3-6 months, within a budget up to $15,000. Deadline for letter of intent is March 1st, 2021, and for project proposal May 7, 2021.
