Description:

Education on Early Prevention of Osteoarthritis for Canadian Armed Forces Members and Veterans

This Knowledge Mobilization project is aimed at understanding, and disseminating information on, how to effectively support members of the Canadian Armed Forces and Veterans in the early prevention of osteoarthritis. This will be a one-year project.

CPCoE defines knowledge mobilization projects as the creation of a knowledge mobilization strategy, dissemination plan, and associated product(s). This process includes identifying main message(s), knowledge user(s), knowledge goal(s), and knowledge product(s) in consultation with people with lived experience. Examples of these items are highlighted below. Awarded applicants will be supported by the CPCoE knowledge mobilization team in building their knowledge mobilization strategy.

  • Main Message(s): a clear and concise headline explaining key takeaways
  • Knowledge User(s): stakeholder groups such as Veterans and their families, clinicians, researchers, policymakers, partner organizations, etc.
  • Knowledge Goal(s): create awareness, influence clinical practice, influence policy, etc.
  • Knowledge Product(s): public-facing plain language summary, infographics, posters, videos, webinars, evidence briefs, social media campaigns, etc.

Effectiveness of Complementary Care Approaches for Canadian Veterans

This research project is aimed at researching one or more CAM approaches for Veterans living with chronic pain using an implementation science or health technology assessment framework. Examples of research topics include, but are not limited to conditions for relevance, clinical considerations, and/or barriers and facilitators for funding eligibility with Veterans Affairs Canada. This will be a one-year project.

For the purposes of this research, CAM approaches are defined as approaches that are not typically part of conventional medical care or that may have origins outside of usual Western practice. Examples include, but are not limited to: mindfulness, breathing and relaxation techniques, meditation, dietary herbs, acupuncture, and Tai Chi. A more detailed list of CAM approaches examples can be found here.

Understanding Comorbidities Associated with Chronic Pain for Canadian Veterans

This research project is aimed at understanding mental health comorbidities associated with chronic pain for Canadian Veterans using secondary data (e.g., provincial health system administrative data, electronic medical record data, secondary analysis, or synthesis of observational studies). The research may focus on any relevant aspects of the comorbidity, such as prevalence, interventions, or outcomes. This will be a one-year project.

Optimizing Postoperative Care for Chronic Pain Prevention in Canadian Veterans

This research project is aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of one or more perioperative interventions to prevent chronic pain in Canadian Veterans. Examples of research topics include but are not limited to: modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors, comparative effectiveness, treatment considerations, and/or a pilot study using a particular intervention. This will be a one-year project.

Eligibility:

  • The proposed project must aim to improve the lives of Canadian Veterans, and their families, suffering from chronic pain.
  • The Principal Investigator identified must be an independent researcher affiliated with a Canadian postsecondary institution with an academic appointment that continues until the conclusion of the funding period.
  • The Principal Investigator identified must have successfully completed a course in Sex and Gender-Based Analysis Plus (SGBA+) from a recognized Canadian institution and submit a Certificate of Completion for verification.
