Bruyère Research Institute

 About the Institute

The Bruyère Research Institute (BRI) focuses on research to improve the care of aging Canadians and vulnerable populations. BRI research contributes to relevant and practical knowledge to build a more responsive health care system that delivers the best care to patients and families so they can recover better, return to work earlier, and have more productive, higher quality lives.


The Institute draws upon its unique situation as part of Bruyère, a multi-service continuing care academic health organization, to work closely with community and long-term care partners to bring faculty into service delivery, students into service learning, and service providers into research and education.The Institute is fully affiliated with the university of Ottawa, and has other academic partners including Carleton University, Algonquin College, and La Cité Collégiale.

  

History & Statistics 

The Bruyère Research Institute, a partnership of Bruyère and the University of Ottawa, was established in 2002 to support researchers who contribute to the relevant and practical knowledge needed to improve continuing care; specifically, to foster quality of life for the elderly, through programs of research related to:

 

  • Primary Care
  • Care of the Elderly
  • Palliative Care

The Bruyère Research Institute draws upon its unique situation, in both a university (University of Ottawa) and a multi-service continuing care academic health centre (Bruyère and the Bruyère Foundation), to work closely with community and long-term care partners to bring faculty into service delivery, students into service learning, and service providers into research and education.

 

Since 2006, our leading scientists at the Institute have raised more than $36 million through more than 400 projects to conduct local, national and international research studies aimed at improving health care.

 

Recognition of the research conducted in the Bruyère Research Institute is evidenced by more than 800 publications and 1600 academic presentations.
