Supporting a change in the way research is done.
Welcome to NL SUPPORT
Welcome to the home of Newfoundland and Labrador’s Support for People and Patient-Oriented Research and Trials Unit, or NL SUPPORT.
NL SUPPORT offers knowledge brokering and expertise to create a culture of patient-oriented research in Newfoundland and Labrador.
We improve outcomes for patients in our province by supporting research that has direct impacts on patient lives, in ways that are important to patients, by making them partners in research.
Why is patient engagement important?
Patients bring expertise to the research team in the form of their lived experience with a specific condition and with the health care system.
Are you a researcher looking for funding?
NL SUPPORT is proud of our efforts to grow patient-oriented research in our province through a program of direct support for professionals and students.
What the heck is SPOR anyway?
SPOR is the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s Strategy for Patient Oriented Research. We are one of many SPOR Support Units across Canada!
