The NL Centre for Applied Health Research

The NL Centre for Applied Health Research is a team of researchers with a unique approach to decision support in Newfoundland and Labrador. Since 2007, the Centre’s Contextualized Health Research Synthesis Program (CHRSP) has been a collaborative partnership that includes applied health researchers at NLCAHR, leaders in Newfoundland & Labrador’s provincial health and community systems, and patient/caregiver advisers. An innovative knowledge translation approach, CHRSP puts research in place by creating reports that support decisions on priority issues are identified by our health system partners with a focus on the unique NL context. The CHRSP team at NLCAHR looks forward to supporting a patient-led project that will explore patient perspectives on Family Care Teams, a new model of primary care now being implemented province wide.
