Sue Harris The Sue Harris Family Practice Knowledge Dissemination Grant supports the publication of family practice research in the area of women’s health. The funding is intended to support new researchers (family practice residents and/or practitioners), who have completed a research study, with the manuscript development and publication process. Successful applicants will be supported by research staff at the Women’s Health Research Institute during the manuscript development process.


The fund honours the life and values of Dr. Sue Harris, a highly regarded family doctor and former Head of the Department of Family Practice at BC Women’s Hospital. Though the Sue Harris grants, we are honouring her values, which include:

  • A commitment to full-spectrum family practice primary care
  • A woman-centred focus
  • Collaborative care
  • Holistic approach
  • Respect for innovation, and
  • Commitment to supporting improvements in practice


The applicant must be either a:

  • Family physician licensed to practice and residing in BC, in good standing with the CFPC/BCCFP who is a new investigator who has completed a research study and wishes to have it published in a peer reviewed journal.
  • A past winner of the Sue Harris Family Practice Research Grant requesting funding to support the publication of findings from that project.

Each applicant is only eligible to be awarded a Sue Harris Knowledge Dissemination Grant Award one time (i.e. successful applicants are not eligible to re-apply for a second grant).

The completed research project proposed for publication must be directly related to women’s health.
A faculty member of UBC must be identified as a co-author

Please also contact Kathryn Dewar with any questions about the Award.


The value of each Sue Harris Family Practice Knowledge Dissemination Grant will be up to $2,500. The number of awards granted each year will be determined by the funds available.
