Campus Alberta Health Outcomes and Public Health

Campus Alberta Health Outcomes and Public Health

The Vision
Improved health achieved through a provincially-integrated health outcomes and public health research and education system.

The Purpose
The overriding goal is to produce synergies and collaboration among provincial stakeholders in health outcomes and public health. Alberta has considerable potential to lead international innovations in these areas.  Through the formal establishment of Campus Alberta Health Outcomes and Public Health, participating partners seek to align creativity, expertise, educational programs, and research platforms toward the common goal of internationally-leading innovation in the domains of health outcomes and public health.

The Participants

  • The School of Public Health at the University of Alberta
  • The O'Brien Institute for Public Health at the University of Calgary
  • The University of Alberta Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry (which includes the Health Outcomes Research Institute)
  • The Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Lethbridge

The academic entities mentioned above exist within a context of engaged government agencies that oversee public health and health care delivery in the province of Alberta.  These include AHS (with its many portfolios engaged in public health), various branches of Alberta Health, and Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions.  Ongoing bi-directional knowledge exchange and interaction between the academic and government agency stakeholders will be essential to achieving meaningful impacts through a provincial collaborative in health outcomes and public health. 

For further information, see the Campus Alberta background document.

An important function of Campus Alberta Health Outcomes and Public Health has been working with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions to secure approval and funding for Alberta’s “SUPPORT” Unit (as part of CIHR’s  STRATEGY FOR PATIENT–ORIENTED RESEARCH (SPOR) program).  For further information, see the Alberta SUPPORT Unit Business Plan and the status of Alberta's SUPPORT platform as at September 2013.
