Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on society is unprecedented in modern times and will likely pervade our lives for years to come. Never before has it been more essential to mobilize Canada’s research excellence and innovation toward improving the efficiency of the health system and the health of Canadians. In response, OSSU’s research centres have pivoted their focus to tackling critical issues and unmet needs regarding COVID-19 utilizing patient-oriented approaches to health and health services research. Their work will have impacts that span local, provincial and national borders.
You will find some of the critical work underway at OSSU’s research centres to combat the COVID-19 pandemic here.
Dr. Nav Persaud, OSSU’s Equity and Diversity champion, has worked with OSSU to develop an Equity Framework to help address inequities. The framework sets out principles and practices for promoting equity in patient-oriented research, as well as equity-related requirements for researchers working with OSSU.
