Funded Research

The purpose of the SCPHRP seed-funding is to support:

  • Feasibility and pilot studies that will inform the development of novel public health interventions
  • Analytical capacity of ongoing or planned evaluation studies funded by other grant-giving bodies
  • Development of monitoring systems that utilize more proximal measures of population health (e.g. ambulatory-care-based morbidity and functional/disability measures, that usually long precede hospitalization and mortality).
  • Development of cross-sectoral record linkage.
