Northwest Territories SPOR SUPPORT Unit (Hotıì ts’eeda)

SPOR SUPPORT Unit | Northwest Territories

The Strategy for Patient Oriented Research (SPOR) is a pan-Canadian initiative established by the Canadian Institute for Health Research (CIHR) whose goal is to engage patients, caregivers, and families as partners in the research process. Northwest Territories SPOR SUPPORT Unit (Hotıì ts’eeda) represents the Northwest Territories as the provincial arm for the SPOR. Hotıì ts’eeda is a research support center that engages community members, organizations and researchers involved in health and health research in the Northwest Territories. Hotıì ts’eeda facilitates collaboration between researchers and Indigenous communities and organizations to support the recognition of NWT health research priorities, as well as to develop a health system that is culturally competent and recognizes Indigenous methodologies and ways of knowing. “Hotıì ts’eeda,” an expression from the Tłı̨chǫ language, refers to the need to move beyond diplomacy to true collaboration, so that when stakeholders part ways, they do so in a positive state.
