Bruyère Research Institute

Institute 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; and
  • 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.
