Report highlights improvements in health services & policy research

23 May 2014

The landscape for health services and policy research in British Columbia has improved significantly over the past decade, partly due to programs and processes developed by the Health Services & Policy Research Support Network (HSPRSN).

A new report produced by MSFHR summarizes HSPRSN’s achievements in building research capacity, addressing priority research areas, and promoting alignment between researchers and decision-makers. As the initiative winds down in 2014, the report offers an opportunity to reflect on the collective impact of programs undertaken by HSPRSN.

Selected highlights of the report are illustrated below.




Program overview


Goal #1: Increase capacity for producing and using health services and policy research




Goal #2: Identify and support high-priority health services and policy research projects and knowledge translation activities



Goal #3: Support alignment between health service and policy researchers and decision-makers in health service organizations
