About Family Medicine Research

Family medicine research is the basis on which family medicine is built. It produces the evidence that supports our clinical practice and helps promote the value of family medicine as a cornerstone of the Canadian health care system. We produce, synthesize, and transfer the results of our research—the evidence—into best practice approaches to patient care.

The Research Department

The CFPC’s Research Department is part of the College’s Academic Family Medicine Division. The Research Department supports the Section of Researchers, provides research advice to the CFPC, organizes the research activities and the Research stream at FMF, and oversees a number of research programs. The Research Department also supports the Practice Improvement Initiative (Pii) and other initiatives related to QI and Research.
