The aim of research in this division is to understand the psychosocial factors, personal behaviors, financing systems, organizational structures and processes, and health technologies that affect access to health care, quality and cost of health care, and health outcomes.
While research in this division may be at the level of individuals, families, cohorts, organizations or populations, the ultimate goal of every investigator in this division should be to better inform patient-oriented clinical decision making, and propose priorities for health systems, services and supportive care teams to achieve improved health outcomes. To realize this goal, this work will closely integrate with the research priorities of every clinical program at TGH and engage in active information exchange and collaborative research with the divisions of Advanced Diagnostics and Experimental Therapeutics.
