The Family Medicine Research Division - Our Mandate

Our Division is committed to enhancing the discipline of family medicine and primary care through rigorous and relevant creation of original evidence to address important knowledge gaps. Our internationally recognized scientists address topics pertaining to multi-morbidity, undifferentiated presentations, and organization of care as well as research on the diagnosis, treatment and management of health problems; prevention and health promotion; family and community interventions; governance; economics; workforce development; access to services; and the three “C’s” of high quality primary care: continuity, coordination and comprehensiveness. This is done through the development and use of different research methodologies that equally value qualitative and quantitative evidence generated by researchers framed in multiple research paradigms. The richness of expertise, experience and interdisciplinarity ensures that our division is actively contributing to our discipline and the health of local communities, across Canada and globally.
