Niagara Health Knowledge Institute (NHKI) is transforming healthcare through knowledge generation and mobilization. Our mission is to lead community hospital-based research in Canada and advance healthcare and health service delivery through research, quality improvement and education.

The Niagara Health Knowledge Institute is the academic hub of Niagara Health whereby all academic activities including research, quality improvement and education flow through.

To name a few, our initiatives and programs include Clinical Research Programs, Quality Improvement Program (I-EQUIP), Community Hospital Research Capacity Building Program. We also have our monthly Research in Progress Rounds whereby researchers and learners share their research and quality improvement projects. Soon, we will launch our Research Grant, Education Grant and Student Scholarship Program.
