|Program Name:||Knowledge Synthesis Grant|
All forms of knowledge synthesis are eligible, including systematic reviews, realist syntheses, narrative syntheses, meta-analyses and meta-syntheses, meta-ethnography. Syntheses that are intended to lead to the development of practice guidelines are also eligible. Syntheses in this funding opportunity may synthesize results from qualitative, quantitative or multi-method research. The types of knowledge than can be synthesized are broad and can include empirical as well as theoretical knowledge. All syntheses in this funding opportunity must assemble, analyse and summarize knowledge. Standard protocols, handbooks and checklists exist to guide the conduct of some syntheses, and A Guide to Knowledge Synthesis is available on CIHR's web site. Applicants are encouraged to make use of and cite these resources where appropriate.
