The BC SUPPORT Unit (Support for People and Patient-Oriented Research and Trials Unit) is a multi-partner organization transitioning from start-up phase to regular operations, preparing to support, streamline and increase patient-oriented research throughout BC. We define patient-oriented research as research that engages patients as partners and focuses on patient-identified priorities with the goals of improving patient experiences, health outcomes and the health system. The Unit is one of several SUPPORT Units being established across the country as part of Canada’s Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) led by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). It is also part of the developing BC Academic Health Science Network (BC AHSN) with the network’s interim board providing governance and oversight.
