Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research

Canada's Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) is about ensuring that the right patient receives the right intervention at the right time.

The objective of SPOR is to foster evidence-informed health care by bringing innovative diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to the point of care, so as to ensure greater quality, accountability, and accessibility of care.

SPOR is a coalition of federal, provincial and territorial partners – all dedicated to the integration of research into care:

  • patients and caregivers
  • researchers
  • health practitioners
  • policy makers
  • provincial/territorial health authorities
  • academic institutions
  • charities
  • pharmaceutical sector
