Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research
Patient-oriented research, the cornerstone of evidence-informed health care, refers to a continuum of research, from initial studies in humans to comparative effectiveness and outcomes research, and the integration of this research into the health care system and clinical practice.
The goal of patient-oriented research is to better ensure the translation of innovative diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to the point-of-care, as well as to help the provinces and territories meet the challenge of delivering high quality, cost-effective health care. It involves ensuring that the right patient receives the right clinical intervention at the right time, ultimately leading to better health outcomes.
Information about the strategy can be found in the sections below.
