The first inaugural Niagara Health Research Retreat: Innovation through Research and Collaboration was a success. This retreat was held on September 23, 2015, with over 50 participants, representing leadership and front line staff from the Niagara Health, as well as leadership from surrounding healthcare and academic organizations. Participants took part in multiple breakout sessions to discuss the current state of research at the Niagara Health. Two main themes emerged from the retreat: research accessibility and engagement. These themes are being used to facilitate the development of a successful and productive research program at Niagara Health.
