People working together to create knowledge and move it into use to benefit Albertans is the core of what we do in support of the priorities of our province. Our impact has been tangible in many areas. We provide mentorship and contribute to knowledge creation. We support the province’s strengths in certain clinical specialities. We contribute to breakthroughs and innovations, and positively effect policy and decision-making to improve the health system. We encourage the growth of biotechnology in the province. We invest in high-quality, peer-reviewed research, and partner to attract research and innovation activity. We also attract people and their families to come to Alberta to become active participants in a thriving health research and innovation sector.
At AIHS, we need to understand how our investments in research have an effect on Albertan’s health and the health system. We are part of a growing community of practice that plans how to gather, measure and understand that information and how to tell people about it and ultimately improve what we do.Find out more »
