We have been doing research over the entire continuum of health- from what it means to live with chronic disease to how to resilience in the face of trauma- and a broad array of health and social services- from health promotion through rehabilitation and palliative care to housing and food security. Over the years we have developed a number of websites for a variety of audiences in order to share our knowledge.
A recent addition to the BCCEWH initiatives is PhiWomen, an interdisciplinary research team funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). The Team is working to reduce gender and health inequities by advancing effective health promotion for women, through the development of a conceptual framework to guide the development, implementation, and evaluation of evidence-based health promotion to improve women’s health.
The PhiWomen Team is igniting an agenda for health promotion for women in Canada. This interdisciplinary Team draws together expertise in clinical medicine, health policy, human kinetics, women’s studies, anthropology, epidemiology, nursing, and sociology, and is made up of researchers, trainees, and staff based primarily at the BCCEWH.
