To acknowledge the multidisciplinary scope and the ways in which health care professionals and researchers will collaborate, the goals of our TIDE BC project are demonstrated within a framework of 7 Work Packages:

  1. Implementation of a new Protocol for diagnostic evaluation of ID, focusing of treatable conditions;
  2. Development of infrastructure to facilitate implementation, evaluation and sustainability of the Protocol;
  3. Investments into next generation genomic technologies;
  4. Improving evidence of and access to treatments;
  5. Evaluation and health economy;
  6. Knowledge dissemination;
  7. Education and Mentoring.

The objectives addressed in all Work Packages reflect a highly integrated cluster combining clinical care, research, evaluation, and knowledge dissemination.
