The Nova-Scotia portion of the PriCARE Program leadership has recently been taken over by Dr. Joanna Zed, from Dr. Fred Burge. Dr. Zed brings her knowledge from an extensive clinical background and experience collaborating with Nova Scotia Health to support the study of nurse-led case management for patients with chronic conditions and complex care needs in primary care settings.

A recent blog post on the BRIC-NS website highlights the collaboration between researchers and Patient Partners to support patient-facing materials and dissemination activities. Dr. Zed will continue to lead this patient-oriented research.

Knowledge translation, or KT, is an integral part of health research projects. KT is how we share what is learned in a study and how to apply those learnings. In a Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) grant, Patient Partners and researchers can work together to move beyond sharing study findings. An integrated KT approach demonstrating co-development and team collaboration with visuals, allows us to begin to do that. Read more here.
