22 de August de 2017

IDIVAL has published the resolution of the Prim-Val Call, aids to primary care research projects included in the Valdecilla Biosanitary Strategic Enhancement Program 2017.

The Prim-Val Grant (Research Projects in Primary Care Valdecilla) has been convened in 2017 for the first time to fund primary care research projects. These projects are led by primary care physicians and nurses and with a total budget of € 30,000. This call involves a new commitment by IDIVAL, thanks to the contribution of the Cantabria Ministry of Health, opening up new projects and research groups, and specifically research in primary care, aligned with the recent incorporations of new research groups to the Institute.

The projects submitted to the Prim-Val call have been evaluated by experts from our country for prioritization and based on this evaluation and endorsed by the IDIVAL Internal Scientific Council.

The results of the external evaluation have finally chosen 6 projects of the Prim-Val call, with a different thematic scope. The projects awarded have focused on prevalent health or general interest problems such as childhood asthma, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, smoking cessation and sex education. The projects have had important nursing participation. To highlight the participation of several health centers: Centro Salud de Puerto Chico (Santander), Isabel Segunda (Santander), Dobra (Torrelavega), Suances, Dávila (Santander), Astillero, Santoña, Piñuena-Cayon, Gama And Miera, and the collaboration in some projects of specialists of the Marqués de Valdecilla University Hospital, Hospital Sierrallana and professors of the University of Cantabria.
