  • Seed funding:
    • To assist arthritis health professionals (members of AHPA) to improve their ability to compete for funds from voluntary, professional and government funding agencies.
    • This type of funding is intended to support the development of a research protocol. It will assist in defraying costs involved in the development of research protocols for the fields of predictive research, clinical research, health care research, and instrument validation.

It supports development of both qualitative and/or quantitative research relevant to arthritis care.
  • Project funding:
    • To support research projects that are designed to further develop the art and science of arthritis care conducted in Canada with a focus on care provided by arthritis health professionals.
    • This type of funding is for the support of research projects with a defined objective.
