Research studies conducted at the Bruyère Research Institute (BRI) can be divided into five research themes. These themes are:
- Cognition and Mobility
- Health Systems and Services
- Primary and Community Care
- Promising Practices
BRI houses the Ottawa data collection site of the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging, as well as the Bruyère Centre for Learning Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care. Additionally, BRI is home to the Centre for Global Health, a World Health Organization (WHO) designated Collaborating Center for Knowledge Translation and Health Technology Assessment in Health Equity. WHO collaborating centres are institutions designated by the WHO’s director-general to form part of an international collaborative network in support of the WHO’s programs. Collaborating centres participate in the strengthening of country resources in terms of information, services, research and training, in support of national health development.
