-Dr. Dell is a Principal Investigator on the Prairie Node of the Canadian Research Initiative in Substance Misuse. Funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), CRISM is a national network of researchers, service providers, policy makers and people with lived experience. In September 2015, four regional CRISM Nodes, one each located in BC, the Prairies, Ontario, and the Quebec/Atlantic regions, began operations.
CRISM ’s overall objective is to translate evidence-based interventions for substance misuse into clinical practice, community-based prevention, and health system changes. The intent is to support the creation of more effective, personal, and adoptable intervention programs and services.
