Bruyère Research Institute

Vision and Mission


The Bruyère Research Institute will be recognized internationally as the source of relevant, practical and leading-edge knowledge for those seeking answers to applied health research questions related to geriatrics and rehabilitation, global health, health systems and services, memory and dementia, palliative care, primary and community care, and promising practices.



The Bruyère Research Institute supports researchers who contribute to the relevant and practical knowledge in continuing care, with a particular focus on cognition and mobility, equity, health systems and services, primary and community care, and promising practices. The Institute draws upon its unique situation as part of the University of Ottawa and Bruyère academic health centre, 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.
