About Bruyère Research Institute

The Bruyère Research Institute (BRI) is a hospital-based research institute affiliated with Bruyère. BRI supports researchers and students who contribute to relevant and practical knowledge to improve the health and care of aging people. 

The focus is on person and patient-oriented and health services research. BRI uses a policy to action framework that promotes collaboration across its five research themes and methods centre. These themes are aligned with the clinical priorities of Bruyère and the patient populations and health and healthcare needs it serves.

BRI draws upon its unique situation as part of Bruyère, an academic health organization, and the University of Ottawa, 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.
