Shift Health Publishes “Fostering Clinical Research in the Community Hospital” Article In Longwoods
Through effective clinical research practices, community hospitals can meet the unique needs of the patients and communities they serve.
We are pleased to share our recent publication in Longwoods, “Fostering Clinical Research in the Community Hospital: Opportunities and Best Practices”, in which we discuss how prioritizing clinical research can enable community hospitals to test and adopt cutting-edge products, and increase the cost-effectiveness and quality of care. Through effective clinical research practices, community hospitals can meet the unique needs of the patients and communities they serve.
We describe the resources, best practices and success stories that community hospitals can draw upon to develop and incentivize clinical researchers, operationalize the clinical research enterprise and make clinical research impactful. Measuring the direct impact of clinical research on both individuals and healthcare systems is complex but a growing body of evidence suggests that research-intensive hospitals contribute to better patient outcomes.
Supported by our team of experienced consultants, we would like to thank Shift Health’s Adrian Snihur, Anne Mullin and Ryan Wiley and other co-authors Andrew Haller and Linnea Aasen-Johnston from Clinical Trials Ontario; Patrick Clifford from Southlake Regional Health Centre; Katie Reposa and Paul MacPherson from University Health Network for their important contributions to this work.
