Multidisciplinary working group to make the growing body of military family research available to health care providers and military families across Canada
The Vanier Institute of the Family is pleased to announce the establishment of Innovation to Impact – a multidisciplinary working group, formed in partnership with Calian, Military Family Services (MFS) and the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR). Motivated by the opportunity to make a tangible difference in the health of the families of serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), Innovation to Impact brings together organizations focused on helping military families.
The working group, comprised of industry, government, not-for-profit and academia, will address the “knowledge to practice” gap related to military family research, which has been a long-standing challenge. The goal of this multidisciplinary working group is to improve the distribution and awareness of the growing body of military family research and to make it available to health care providers and families across Canada.
