The first phase of the BC health research strategy was guided and led by several organizational bodies that reflect a variety of perspectives on the health research system in BC. As well, a consultation and outreach strategy ensured that Directions for Health Research in BC reflected feedback from various groups from around the province.
On a day to day basis, the project was supported by a planning team. The planning team sought guidance from an advisory board and a reference group. The process was facilitated by the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research.
