SPOR Primary Care Network funded by CIHR

Sabrina Wong leads a team awarded $10M from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) to build a research network aimed at transforming primary care. The new Strategy for Patient-Oriented (SPOR) Primary Care Research Network (PCRN) will build upon patient-oriented primary care innovations from the previous SPOR Primary and Integrated Health Care Innovations Network (2014-2022), of which BC-PHCRN was part. This established interdisciplinary and intersectoral network of people will continue to collaborate on generating solution-focused innovations in primary care delivery.

The SPOR PCRN’s vision is to create a sustainable pan-Canadian primary health care (PHC) learning health system network supported by patient-oriented, practice-based research and learning to improve patient and provider experiences in delivering and receiving care; population health; and health care system expenditures. The Network’s mission is to establish and grow provincial and territorial practice-based research and learning networks (PBRLNs) supported by a PHC information system consisting of electronic medical record data linked with patient reported experience and outcome measures.
