You missed the first wave of the Rossy Cancer Network’s (RCN) Quality Improvement Initiatives Fund (QI2) this past spring? Now’s your chance! The RCN has launched another round of funding, offering a grant of up to $30,000 for a project that addresses an area of cancer care quality that will have a direct impact on patients.
The grant is open to all healthcare practitioners who work with cancer patients at the Jewish General Hospital, including physicians, nurses and allied health professionals. Teams must be comprised of members from at least two RCN-partner hospitals (the JGH, MUHC and SMHC). To qualify for the grant, candidates must demonstrate that the proposed project, once operational, will have a short-term impact on the delivery of care.
In addition to funding, QI2 provides project support from an RCN project manager, a clinical analyst or a statistician to help put quality improvement ideas into action. Previous recipients proposed conducting a feasibility study for an oncology urgent care clinic, developing a gold standard in fertility preservation, enacting improvements in the care of adolescent and young adults with cancer, and providing support for cancer patients with children.
Applications for QI2 will be accepted until September 29.
