ACRC: Strategic Priorities
In 2010, Alberta’s Health Research and Innovation Strategy (AHRIS) was developed to provide a framework to align the province’s health and clinical research goals with the government’s top priority of improving the health and well-being of Albertans.
In March 2011, the members of Alberta’s clinical research community and the health care systems agreed that by working together guided by a common vision and purpose, we would be able to achieve great things for clinical research in Alberta.
In June 2012, the Alberta Clinical Research Consortium (ACRC) came together to celebrate the release of its Inaugural Strategic Plan and to envision the future of the clinical research in Alberta as one of the first provinces in Canada supported by such innovation.

By providing opportunities for professional development and networking, the ACRC promotes inter-organizational connectivity.
By providing tools, templates and resources guided by best practice and rooted in quality by design, we aim to build the capacity of clinical health research.
The ACRC supports the development of IT systems that facilitate the seamless exchange of appropriate information.
In order to facilitate a research culture in Alberta, the ACRC encourages physicians, nurses, staff and researchers to undertake clinical research as a part of their evidence-based clinical practice.
