POR in support of clinical and organizational transformations in local care and services

As part of this program, the Unité de soutien SSA Québec provides teams with coaching and methodological expertise in patient-oriented research (POR) requirements.

In 2018, the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS) launched the targeted grant program La recherche axée sur le patient (RAP) en appui aux transformations cliniques et organisationnelles en soins et services de proximité intégrés in partnership with the Unité de soutien SSA Québec and the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé (FRQS).

This program is in line with Canada’s SPOR, one of the flagship initiatives of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), of which the Unité de soutien SSA Québec is an integral part as a provincial unit.

Transformational research in health and social services aims to ensure that the knowledge generated by research and best practices is more systematically focused on the user and integrated into clinical and organizational practices, as well as into the decision-making processes that govern care and service systems.
