Thoughtful science. Enabling healthcare. Helping patients.

The Center for Safety Research brings together scientists, staff physicians and investigators from academia and healthcare who utilize scientifically valid methodologies to describe, innovate and evaluate: in projects related to both the safety and quality of healthcare. Our approaches and data types range from qualitative to quantitative datasets – data that others describe as ‘big’.

The CSR science is founded on thoughtful ideas, quality data, robust analysis, and transparent reporting, "because research that guides practice and policy must be of the highest standard."

We conceive and conduct high-quality research including: multi-site collaborations, thesis dissertations, summer students, proof of concept work and detailed literature synthesis.  

Over $9 million of peer-reviewed and donor funding enables us but does not define our successes.  We are grateful that others see the value of the work done at CSR.  CIHR, RDV, Heart and Stroke, Society of Critical Care Medicine, ALIMA

Each CSR project is fueled by a passion to create helpful knowledge.  Each strives to address the quadruple aim of improved outcomes for patients, their families, health care professionals and heatlh care administrators.
