ARTIC 2018 Call for Proposals

Announcing 2018 Call for Proposals
ARTIC Implementation and Spread Funding

Health Quality Ontario (HQO) and the Council of Academic Hospitals of Ontario (CAHO) have announced ARTIC’s 2018 Call for Proposals.

Supported by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, ARTIC (Adopting Research to Improve Care)’s goal is to accelerate the spread of evidence-based health care across Ontario.

Each year, ARTIC issues a Call for Proposals for high-impact clinical interventions or practice changes that are proven to work and are ready to spread across the province. This year, they’re calling for proven interventions or practice changes that align with HQO quality standards.

  • Proposed interventions or practice changes must have already been proven and successfully implemented in at least one site.
  • ARTIC will be funding at least one initiative over a 19–24 month period, with maximum available funding of $1,000,000.

ARTIC provides health care teams with funding and active support over approximately two years to ensure their interventions or practice changes are successfully spread to other health care providers across Ontario.

ARTIC also works to ensure that initiatives it supports are sustainable beyond the two-year period and that they can continue to spread to more and more health care providers across the province.

The 2018 Call for Proposals package, Letter of Intent template and online submission tool are available on the HQO and CAHO websites.

Submissions will be accepted beginning April 30, 2018. Letters of intent are due by May 25, 2018. If you have questions, please contact

Two webinars will be held on March 26 and April 19 to outline the application process and address any questions applicants may have. Please contact the ARTIC Program Team for webinar access information.
