Health research provides important information about disease trends and risk factors, outcomes of treatment, patterns of care, and health care costs and usage to name a few. This is what fuels us to do more. Our journey to become a community-based research and academic centre began several years ago. Niagara Health established a dedicated Research Office in 2015, strengthened our research and academic partnerships and set out to conduct research that would inform care, inspire innovation and create environments of collaborative learning.
Brock University and Niagara Health launched a new partnership in March 2019 that will increase opportunities to improve the overall health and wellbeing in our region and beyond. It will place a heightened focus on research that will help people stay healthy, improve both patient outcomes and the way healthcare is delivered, and create training and employment opportunities for Brock students and graduates.
Niagara Health hosted its inaugural Research Day at its St. Catharines Site in November 2018. More than 100 researchers, students, academics and healthcare workers attended the event to learn about medical research being conducted in the region.
