TREC awarded CIHR Project Grant

Bring out the confetti again because we are very excited today to share the news that we have secured funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)! The project, titled The Influence of Context on Implementation and Improvement, received $2,096,101 in funding. This grant will allow us to study the complex ways context and facilitation work together to impact the success of quality improvement initiatives. We congratulate the project team for their success!

We are energized after our

Annual General Meeting 2019

Every year we bring together our large team at our AGM to share stories about our successes and setbacks, and together chart a way forward. This year we met on June 20th in Edmonton. A diverse and engaged group of researchers, knowledge users, decision makers, citizens, staff, and students attended the meeting. We learned more about the future of TREC and what is in store for TREC 3.0. Yes that's right, TREC 3.0 is coming! Keynote speaker Dr. Tom Noseworthy provoked our thoughts with a talk about what it takes for a system to scale a research based innovation successfully. It was a pleasure seeing everyone, and we are already looking forward to next year and the launch of TREC 3.0!
