RESOLVE Alberta

Research and Education for Solutions to Violence and Abuse (RESOLVE) is a tri-prairie research network that co-ordinates and supports research aimed at ending violence, especially violence involving girls and women.

The goal of RESOLVE is to reduce the incidence and impact of violence and abuse by:

  • creating and evaluating strategies to address violence and abuse;
  • communicating our research results to the public and policy makers;
  • promoting education, awareness, and social change.

To accomplish this we:

  • work with community groups to identify areas where additional research needs to be done;
  • develop action-oriented research projects;
  • work in interdisciplinary teams in partnership with community groups and other universities and centres in Canada;
  • we train students and members of the community organization in research methods.

 

The RESOLVE network is affiliated with the University of Calgary, University of Saskatchewan, University of Manitoba, University of Regina, University of Alberta, University of Winnipeg, and Brandon University.

Other research you may be interested in:

HeLTI Canada was developed in partnership with the World Health Organization and is one of four separate but harmonized studies focused on developing evidence-based interventions that span from preconception across pregnancy and into the postpartum period and early childhood. Their purpose is to evaluate whether technology-based care can improve the health of families before pregnancy (preconception), during pregnancy, and into early childhood and promote child development while preventing obesity and chronic diseases.

They are recruiting women and their partners who are planning to have a baby in the next 3 years and live in the provinces of Ontario (cities of Toronto, Ottawa, and Hamilton and the health regions of Durham, York, Peel, Halton, and Niagara) and Alberta (Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary and surrounding area)
