Research at Providence

At Providence, we are committed to supporting research activities in any clinical or non-clinical area that promotes our vision of giving the people we care for the knowledge and confidence to stay healthy and safe at home, for as long as possible.

We encourage our staff and students to participate in research, evidence-based practice and knowledge translation activities as part of becoming a Community of Experts that supports our BEST Together Strategic Plan.

Not only do research activities add to the body of knowledge in Canada, research helps improve the standard of care for Providence patients, residents and clients.

As much as possible, research activities should be funded through collaboration with external partners (partners may include associations, foundations, academic institutions, societies, major donors or pharmaceutical organizations), however we do have research funds available within Providence as well.

All research activities conducted at Providence must be initiated through the Research Office, approved by the Research Ethics Board (REB) and report (at least) annually to the REB, once approved.
