We have been very fortunate in obtaining a one-time only, joint grant awarded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and Canadian Institutes of Health Research on the Healthy and Productive Workplace. It is a continuation of the partnership development grant that was conducted over a two year period. This present grant can be considered Phase 2 which will allow us to to scale up the project. and is a 5-year grant of 2.Million dollars.
Over the years there have been a number of solutions put forward on how to humanize our disease-centric, deficit-based, medically driven health care system to make it more responsive to the health care needs of its citizens.
Patient/Family-Centered Care, Empowerment, Collaboration, Health Promotion and most recently, Patient Engagement, and Patient Experiences have become part of the new lexicon of 21st-century health care delivery. Yet our system remains largely unchanged because its theoretical foundations have remained unaltered. Few know how to translate these ideals into reality. Yet, the way forward is apparent: what all of the proposed solutions have in common is a focus on people's strengths.
