Pain in Child Health: A CIHR Strategic Training Initiative in Health Research
Principal Investigators: Patrick McGrath, Ken Craig, Carl von Baeyer, Bonnie Stevens, Celeste Johnston, Allen Finley and Ruth Grunau
Under the sponsorship of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), leading research centres in the area of pediatric pain have joined to provide a training consortium to strengthen the preparation of trainees to become independent investigators.
The consortium offers supplementary funding for trainees, a summer/fall institute, national lab meetings by means of web distance tools, visits to other labs, international speakers series, and web based courses on pain. However, its most important function is to develop a community of scholars in pediatric pain.
Membership in the consortium is open to those with a commitment to pain in child health in any discipline and at any level in their training and is by application. Membership makes trainees eligible for (but does not guarantee) financial assistance. The major training centres are Halifax, Montreal, Toronto, Saskatoon and Vancouver.Contact: Justine Dol, Interim Program Manager
