Western researchers part of federal funding boost for research into transitions in care

Congratulations to Dr. Maria Mathews, Dr. Stewart Harris and their team on receiving a CIHR Team Grant – Transitions in Care Funding of $895,000.  The funds received will evaluate the program to determine its impact on patient well-being, on health-care providers, prevention of diabetes-related complications, and health system costs.

With the $895,000 investment in their research, the team will determine “how we can best provide high-quality care for people with chronic conditions in a way that supports their health, eases strain on family doctors, and creates efficiencies in the health care system.”
