OSSU is thrilled to announce CIHR’s renewed commitment of a combined investment of more than $68 million from the Government of Canada, the Government of Ontario and provincial partners to support the ongoing work of patient-oriented research in Ontario.  We would like to thank the Honorable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Health for this announcement in Ottawa on October 24, 2022.

What is patient-oriented research?

Patient-oriented research (POR) is an approach to health research that:
