ICES Queen's

In the spring of 2006, ICES made a proposal to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care as part of its renewal application that an ICES site be established at each of the Ontario medical schools, and the University of Waterloo. The MOHLTC endorsed the principles of increasing access to high quality data for researchers, and building broader capacity for policy-relevant health services research, and a plan to pilot this model at Queen's University in 2007 was established.

Our scientists represent a broad range of research interests and disciplines and have achieved national (and international) recognition in their areas of expertise, all holding appointments at Queen's University and some maintaining clinical practices in hospitals in the Kingston area.

Our work covers the assessment of health care delivery and the effectiveness, as well as cost-effectiveness, of drug therapies and treatment programs. The latter includes oncology and pharmacoepidemiology, with specific focus on ophthalmology, diabetes, asthma, nursing and primary care.
