Primary Care & Population Health Research Program

Program Lead: Rick Glazier
Program Coordinator: PCPHadmin@ices.on.ca

The Primary Care and Population Health Research Program researches the accessibility and effectiveness of primary health care, and issues in population health. Researchers are currently examining the performance of primary care reform models, the use of electronic medical records for research and quality improvement. We have developed methods to examine the burden of chronic conditions, infectious diseases, and injury; the causes of ill health, the effectiveness of public health interventions, and indigenous health.
