The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta, NWT & Nunavut (HSFA) greatly values the opportunity to provide funding to deserving healthcare providers to attend research and education sessions with agreement that they return to share their learning with colleagues in their work unit. Therefore, the decision to cancel this program was very difficult to make but HSFA is faced with many challenges at this time of fiscal constraint. It is our hope to review this decision in the future and that we will be able to revitalize this very valuable professional development program.

Professional Development Bursary Program

The Professional Development Bursary Program of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta, NWT & Nunavut (HSFA) is designed to encourage and support the continuing education of health professionals working in cardio- and cerebrovascular health promotion, disease prevention, intervention, and rehabilitation. The Program focuses on continuing education initiatives that translate research into practice with a view to apply evidence based new and emerging trends to improve patient care. Continuing education is deemed important in order that health professionals have the most current knowledge and skills that they can apply in practice and also share with colleagues.
