Your application must address how your project clearly aligns with one of the areas in the framework for health (Interprofessional Collaborative Practice, Cultural Fluency, or Ecological Approaches) or be related to Clinical Innovation or Inclusive Excellence. Your proposal will be strengthened if it also addresses primary care, senior living, or global health.
HSSH Framework for Health:
Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (ICP) - when multiple health workers from different backgrounds work together with patients, families, carers, and communities to deliver the highest quality of care (WHO, 2010)
Cultural Fluency - ability to navigate the many dimensions of culture needed to build shared meaning and understanding with people from other cultures. It is comprised of several skills such as working with ambiguity, flexibility, respect, empathy and adaptability (Inoue, 2007)
Ecological Approach - grounded in the understanding that the conditions that result in individual health or illness arise out of the interaction between an individual’s traits and their physical and sociocultural environment and are influenced on multiple levels (e.g. intrapersonal, interpersonal, organizational, community and policy (Sallis & Owen, 2015)
Clinical Innovation - reimagined approaches to didactic and clinical education and new programming responsive to emerging healthcare needs
Inclusive Excellence - to develop a climate that is diverse and welcoming of diversity so that all members of the university community feel valued and find value in the unique qualities and perspectives of their colleagues.
