Have a research idea to help frontline populations receive healthcare? Submit a funding application to AstraZeneca

In the spirit of the Frontline Health program's collaborative nature, consultations with leading academics have led to the Frontline Health program actively supporting or pursuing research initiatives in these critical areas.
Summary: 

A critical issue for marginalized populations is the lack of healthcare providers on the frontlines. This is made worse by the rapid turnover of those who begin, but soon leave, a frontline practice. The end result? A system - already stretched thin - that is approaching the breaking point. One solution to this problem is to improve the recruitment, training and retention of healthcare providers in frontline settings. Canadian medical schools have implemented a variety of curriculum and training approaches to address this issue but many of these programs are in their infancy and are just being evaluated for their effectiveness.

Over and above training, several studies have looked at the factors that affect attraction, recruitment and retention of frontline healthcare providers (most of these studies have focused on rural and remote areas of practice). And while certain predictors of success have been identified, the broader factors are not well understood.

If you have any research ideas that will help frontline populations, we encourage you to submit a funding application here.
