The below dates pertain to the Expression of Interest. Following review of the Expressions of Interest, full Research Funding Applications will be solicited by the Chronic Pain Centre of Excellence.
A recent study on the research priorities of Canadian Veterans showed a need to better understand how different physical therapy modalities can impact chronic pain in the Veteran population. When Veterans transition to civilian life, they may receive benefits from Veterans Affairs Canada for physical therapies to manage their chronic pain related to military service. Common physical therapies covered include physiotherapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic care.1
However, it can be difficult for Veterans to navigate what physical therapies will be most beneficial for their specific chronic pain needs in the short and long-term.
This project is aimed at understanding, and disseminating information on, how to support Veterans understand the benefits of physical therapies and make decisions on which physical therapies will be best suited for their chronic pain management. This will be a one-year knowledge mobilization project.*
*CPCoE defines knowledge mobilization projects as the creation of a knowledge mobilization strategy, dissemination plan, and associated product(s).

Examples of these items are highlighted below. Awarded applicants will be supported by the CPCoE knowledge mobilization team in building their knowledge mobilization strategy.
The total funding available for this one-year knowledge mobilization project is $100,000 CAD.
