Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute comprises over 1500 personnel engaged in various facets of health based research in seven centers and three programs. Their intention is to have long lasting impacts on patient care and health care systems in British Columbia, and around the globe.
The Rehabilitation Research Program is one of VCHRI’s three programs. In partnership with VCHRI, the University of British Columbia, and G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre, the RRP aims to discover innovative solutions to optimize the outcomes of rehabilitation and improve the lives of those with disabilities and their families. The knowledge generated through the Rehabilitation Research Program is an essential component of Vancouver Coastal Health’s mandate to advance knowledge and practices that help people to maximize their abilities after injury or disability.
