“Establish implementation and coordination headquarters and resources: Preferably by leveraging the capacity of an existing forum (Rx&D and HealthCareCAN are recommending alignment with the CIHR Strategy for Patient Oriented Research (SPOR) if possible); establish an implementation committee and resources that would oversee and enable implementation of this action plan and that could coordinate, link and leverage, different activity types and inter-provincial clinical trial improvement activities.”
