Background and Purpose
The mission of the Maternal Newborn Child and Youth (MNCY) Strategic Clinical NetworkTM (SCNTM) is “to bring together people, evidence and data to achieve the best possible health outcomes for mothers, newborns, children and families within a sustainable, publically funded health care system.” To facilitate this mission, Nutrition and Food Services (NFS) at Alberta Health Services (AHS) made value-added funds available to the MNCY SCN to be used for research and quality improvement (QI) projects to improve health and clinical care for mothers, infants, children, and youth. The registration and grant review process was managed by PolicyWise for Children & Families. Successful applicants were notified on April 16, 2019.
