MSFHR forum: Fostering Collaborations in Digital Health Research

The Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research is co-hosting a one-day interactive forum that will take a closer look at how collaboration between research, industry, government, health care, and education sectors can succeed in leading to real-world benefits. Engagement sessions will create opportunities for all sectors to jointly explore innovative solutions for:

  1. Youths with mental health conditions (ages 11 to 25)
  2. Seniors living at home with complex care needs

The forum will also support the formation of cross-sectoral research teams in preparation for CIHR’s eHealth Innovations Partnership Program (eHIPP) funding opportunity. It will be held on February 5, 2015.
