The foundation of Quality of Care NL is collaboration. No matter who you are, there are opportunities for you to get involved!
As part of our patient-centred approach, Quality of Care NL strives to build partnerships between health researchers, health care providers, and people who use the health care system. Patient Partners are volunteers who assist project teams in various phases of projects, from study design to knowledge translation.
Social and Clinical Leaders
Quality of Care NL is proud to partner with clinicians, health care providers and social care professionals throughout the province to advance our initiatives. Social and/or Clinical Leaders assist in the delivery of Academic Detailing sessions to further engage colleagues in conversations about practice, barriers, and possible solutions for better health care delivery.
Choosing Wisely STARS
Choosing Wisely STARS (Students and Trainees Advocating for Resource Stewardship) is a grassroots, student-led campaign in partnership with Choosing Wisely Canada that seeks to change the culture of medical education by addressing the behaviours that can lead to unnecessary care. Our Choosing Wisely NL STARS have helped lead initiatives within various disciplines and units to enhance student awareness and engage practice change in various meaningful ways.
Research Apprenticeship Program (for first year medical students)
As part of the Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME) curriculum at Memorial University, each medical student is required to complete a research project with the goal of introducing medical students to the research process. Students accepted for the Research Apprenticeship Program will receive mentorship in Clinical Epidemiology, Biostatistics, Ethics and Knowledge Translation to assist with the completion of curriculum requirements.
Research Funding Opportunities
Research Grant & Contract Services maintains a database of internal and external funding opportunities for researchers at Memorial University.
