Congratulations to Dr. Gerald McKinley who was awarded $35,000 through the Canadian Research Initiative in Substance Misuse (CRISM) community-based research program to study the impact of increased social inclusion and perceptions of belonging on individuals engaged in substance misuse on a local First Nation. It is a one-year pilot project. CRISM’s overall objective is to translate evidence-based interventions for substance use into clinical practice, community-based prevention, harm reduction, and health system changes. The goal is to support the creation of more effective, personal, and adoptable intervention programs and services. CRISM is funded by CIHR.
