Patients, their families, and caregivers are best placed to know what is important and what is not when receiving health care services. That’s why patient-oriented research and care is so vital. Through their lived experience, patients bring valuable firsthand perspectives to research that, in turn, help lead to new and better ways of delivering care that ultimately improve the health of all people in Canada.
Today, MP Terry Duguid, Member of Parliament for Winnipeg South, on behalf of the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Health, announced a joint investment of $30 million from the Government of Canada, the Government of Manitoba, and provincial partners, Shared Health and the University of Manitoba, to support the next phase of the Manitoba SPOR Support for People and Patient-Oriented Research and Trials (SUPPORT) Unit, which connects research with patient needs so that evidence-based solutions can be applied to health care.
The Manitoba SPOR SUPPORT Unit is embedded within the George & Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation (CHI)
