The BC SUPPORT (Support for People and Patient-Oriented Research and Trials) Unit provides services to researchers, patients, health care providers and health system decision makers, and facilitates initiatives identified as provincial priorities.
We’re one of several SUPPORT Units established across the country as part of Canada's Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR). SPOR is led by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
We’re part of the developing
BC Academic Health Science Network (BC AHSN). The BC AHSN board provides governance
and oversight to the Unit.
