Anick Bérard obtains major funding from the Pan-Canadian Women’s Health Coalition

Montreal, August 25, 2023 - Professor Anick Bérard is the new CAMCCO-Outreach Hub lead for the Pan-Canadian Women’s Health Coalition. The $840,000 grant over four years from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) will allow for implementation of this major knowledge translation hub.

The primary goal of the CAMCCO-Outreach Hub is to reduce inequalities in reproductive care outcomes through the effective translation of information or data into knowledge that pregnant people and healthcare providers can use to provide better education and care, and to improve public policies, particularly for marginalized populations.

A knowledge translation initiative at the intersection of research and training

The CAMCCO-Outreach Hub will leverage and build on the existing national research (CAMCCO-Research) and training infrastructure (CAMCCO-Learn) led by Anick Bérard, to position knowledge translation and dissemination strategies and activities at the intersection of the research and training platforms.

While the initiative’s main target is people of childbearing age, including pregnant and lactating individuals and new parents, it also aims to inform the general population and perinatal care teams with current and valid knowledge. “We have four objectives for the CAMCCO-Outreach Hub, explains Anick Bérard, principal investigator. First, we want to provide valid, reliable, and up-to-date bilingual information on the safety of medication use in pregnancy. Second, we aim to raise awareness about the importance of considering the safety of medication use in pregnancy overall and in sub-populations historically excluded from the public discourse. Third, we wish to support informed decision making about maternal and fetal health. And, more generally, we wish to contribute evidence-based knowledge on medication and pregnancy. »
