Every day, our health care professionals solve problems, ask questions, and enhance their practice in order to provide the best possible patient care. We believe that this commitment to ongoing learning and innovation is what makes University Health Network (UHN) a great place to give and receive care.
As part of UHN, the Collaborative Academic Practice (CAP) portfolio leads practice, research, and education across the health professions. Our strategy around
Practice-Based Research and Innovation is integral to how we practice, how we continue to improve, and how we contribute to the development of new knowledge within UHN and beyond. We define "Practice Based Research and Innovation" as the systematic and scholarly inquiry into questions that arise from practice settings, that are of concern to practitioners, patients and families, and have the potential to inform how we might practice in the future.
We support Practice-Based Research and Innovation by providing the infrastructure, processes, and programs that enable innovative connections between knowledge and care.
Our activities include:
our vision is to support and sustain highly functioning teams of clinicians, educators, researchers, students and leaders engaging in collaborative research and innovation to generate knowledge that transforms academic practice at UHN and beyond.
