5. Maximize our education, research and academic health sciences potential

The Queen’s Health Partners Research Institute (QHPRI) will be dedicated to building innovative partnerships and pursuing research excellence through a collaborative approach that leverages the combined strengths of its founding partners (Queen's University, Kingston Health Sciences Centre, and Providence Care).  The founding partners have a long history of research collaboration, but in today’s competitive research landscape, the need for strategic partnerships that go beyond traditional research collaborations has become essential. This year we are aiming to finalize the creation of this exciting new research institute.

Each year, Kingston Health Sciences Centre welcomes more than 100 medical residents who spend several years with us, caring for patients at both sites, while completing their training to become full physicians. Last year, together with the Queen's School of Medicine, KHSC implemented the competency-based medical education (CBME) training model. KHSC will work together with providers, teachers, and patients to respond to feedback and continuously improve the system. This year our focus will be to support the provision of feedback from our nursing staff into the CBME system. 

By 2019:

The Kingston-wide Health Research Institute is a legally-incorporated entity with charitable status and approved for the purposes of Scientific Research and Experimental Development Credits;
