The Need for Research

Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre has a strong history of innovation and leading-edge practice which has helped us attract and retain the brightest and best healthcare providers. 

On June 17, 2013, RVH launched its strategy to deliver MY CARE 2013-2020 and pledged to make
research a strategic focus by committing to Accelerate Teaching & Research as one of the four
new strategic directions.

RVH’s vision for Research will be rooted in the MY CARE philosophy, where patients and families
are at the centre of all that we do. By advancing innovation, learning and research, RVH will
accelerate to the next level of excellence - raising the bar to bring exceptional care close to home
for residents throughout Simcoe Muskoka.

By truly encouraging people to THINK BIG, research at RVH will focus on seeking a better way
through a culture of inquiry, innovation and enthusiasm to promote better outcomes, better
knowledge and better health.

With Your help, RVH will initiate a research institute to encourage and support physicians and other caregivers in research projects, clinical trials and practice improvements. By participating in applied, patient-centred research, local patients gain access to leading-edge treatments and new medications close to home. 


Renewed Focus on Research 

RVH will strengthen its academic and research mandate by building on its highly successful Family Medicine Teaching Unit (FMTU), a partnership with the University of Toronto, and will expand its interprofessional training of the next generation of physicians, nurses and other healthcare specialists.

RVH will advance learning and seek out research opportunities that support organizational performance and enhance patient care.

We will:

1. Create a comprehensive vision for teaching and research that strengthens our new clinical strategic plan
     
2. Pursue purposeful partnerships to advance our teaching and research mission
     
3. Build on our unique strengths and expertise to provide the highest standards in teaching and training for future generations
