The Locally Driven Collaborative Projects (LDCP) program facilitates collaboration so that health units can work together to conduct applied research and program evaluation projects that explore critical public health issues of shared interest. Since 2011, PHO has supported over 150 health unit representatives on 17 teams to collaboratively develop their ideas into researchable questions, design a research protocol, implement their projects, and engage in knowledge transfer of their project’s findings.
Get involved as a new LDCP cycle gets underway. We will be reaching out to public health units to identify and prioritize ideas for new LDCPs, and creating new teams. This presentation will provide: an overview of the LDCP program and how to get involved; program activities and key dates for the new cycle; and information about the upcoming priority setting process. Health unit representatives with an idea for a LDCP as well as those interested in participating on a LDCP team are encouraged to attend!
