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
- health practitioners
- policy makers
- provincial/territorial health authorities
- academic institutions
- pharmaceutical sector
