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.

Our Goal

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.

Participants Required!

Did you visit a resident of a long-term care facility in the Eastern Health or Western Health region during the COVID-19 pandemic? If so, we’d like to hear your perspective!
