Our purpose is to respond to the needs of people, their caregivers, and health and social care providers, to develop evidence-based solutions to tough health and social care problems.
Our goal is to synthesize, generate, translate, adapt and mobilize scientific evidence in the co-design, implementation, and evaluation of person- and family-centred health and social care services.
