Assisting Cancer Health Services Research

Cancer Strategic Clinical NetworkTM


The Cancer SCN is well-positioned to partner with cancer researchers to advance cancer care and outcomes. We can provide the following supports, helping cancer researchers:

  • identify local, provincial and national research funding opportunities
  • identify and engage suitable inter- and cross-disciplinary collaborators
  • navigate grant writing processes, submitting funding proposals, and obtaining appropriate project approvals
  • access relevant research support services available within AHS
  • identify local, provincial, and national opportunities for knowledge dissemination

We can also provide:

  • expert scientific advice and/or mentorship (as negotiated) on the critical appraisal of best evidence, development and articulation of research questions, and the selection of appropriate research methodologies and analytic/evaluation plans
  • guidance on managing post-submission reviewer feedback, and for funded applications, guidance on managing research budgets and timelines
  • feedback on research products (e.g., presentations, reports, published manuscripts)

We welcome individuals conducting cancer research at Alberta’s academic institutions, AHS, and community partners to contact us to explore collaboration opportunities.
