What Investigators Are Saying About Us: Indigenous Health Research

“Recently our research team reached out to the Alberta SPOR Support Unit’s Consultation and Research Services Platform to assist with project planning and a grant application to the MSI Foundation. Our project application, “Nohtawiy (my father): Supporting Cree fathers-to-be using a culturally-appropriate, community led, and strengths-based approach: impact on maternal, infant and paternal outcomes” was much stronger as a result of the expertise of the Alberta SPOR Support Unit and the consultation process. Specifically, through the Consultation and Research Services platform and face-to-face meetings we were able to develop a more coherent and robust data capture and analysis plan, and a more meaningful knowledge translation framework, that made sense for both our community partners and our research group. This was my first experience with the team, and would not hesitate to recommend the services to colleagues.”
