Connecting with Canadians
Health and Health Human Resources
The Canadian health care system is both fiercely defended yet hotly debated on many fronts. Most Canadians agree that better and timely access to quality health care services, more accountability and better human resource planning are essential. CPRN carries out research on these fronts with the goal of insuring the system has the capacity to provide the best care possible for all Canadians.
Just as the practice of medicine should be informed by the best scientific evidence, health policy is increasingly shaped by the findings of research in health services and population health. We produce, analyze and disseminate health research to help policy makers and health care providers improve the performance of our health system. We seek to engage decision-makers, citizens and other stakeholders in bridging the gap between research and the implementation of health policies.
