What is the CICC?
The Centre for Innovation in Complex Care (CICC) is dedicated to studying how to improve the entire process of care for patients with multiple problems. Its purpose is to engage our patients and clinicians to identify problems with current healthcare practices and develop solutions for addressing them. Innovative research and evaluation in a real clinical environment will allow our clinicians to utilize the latest technology to improve patient care. Key linkages with groups such as the Ministry of Health and the SIMS Partnership will ensure patients from across the city and the province will benefit from the innovative research conducted through the CICC.
Who are We?
Our interprofessional team of faculty and members include individuals with backgrounds in medicine, nursing, pharmacy, the allied health professions, health informatics, and research. It is this diverse set of skills that allow us to truly impact change and improve the care we deliver to our patients. Anyone who is interested in being part of the CICC and contribute to our innovation efforts are welcome.
