Quality of Life Research Grants

Quality of Life Research Grants to support research that has the potential to make a significant impact on the burden of disease in patients, survivors and caregivers. These grants explore psychosocial, survivorship, supportive care and end-of-life issues, to address research gaps, needs and opportunities, or models for follow-up care.

Description: Intended to explore psychosocial, survivorship, symptom control, supportive care and end-of-life issues, research gaps, needs and opportunities, or models for survivorship care. The grants are meant to accelerate and focus the knowledge gained from scientific findings, in the short or long term, into outcomes that will result in the reduced burden or enhanced quality of life for cancer patients in Canada and elsewhere.
