This fellowship program provides a unique opportunity for point-of-care health care professionals to lead a quality- improvement or research project. This project must be related to the organization's and program's strategic priorities, and to engage in professional leadership.
In 2013, Holly Wykes, RKin, was awarded the Andreae Family Peter Munk Cardiac Centre Interprofessional Innovations and Research Fellowship. The initiative, entitled "Managing Inpatient Referrals to Cardiac Rehabilitation: Enhancing Collaboration along the Continuum of Care" bridged the gap between inpatient cardiovascular services and outpatient cardiac rehabilitation.

ACCELERATION is a research project aimed at preventing chronic disease. It is designed to improve an individual's health and well-being, through diet, exercise, smoking cessation and appropriate alcohol intake.
The project consists of a 12-week education and supervised exercise program, focusing on healthy behaviour modification, motivation, and exercise. Kinesiology is one of the key disciplines delivering this behavioural and lifestyle change intervention.
Toronto site lead Megan Cahill, RKin will head up the project and work with site leads across Canada to recruit at least 3,000 participants across diverse settings in British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia. The goal of this project is to change the way Canadian's prevent chronic disease.
