Research and evaluation are important parts of the services provided by the Rehabilitation Centre for Children (RCC). Research helps us learn new things and provide better care and new technologies for our children and youth. Evaluations and quality improvement projects are done to make sure that we are doing the best things for our programs and services. Clinicians, therapists and other staff at RCC do research and quality improvement projects. Researchers from universities and health centres in Manitoba, across Canada, and internationally also do research at RCC and SSCY Centre.
The goals of research and evaluation at RCC are to:
- learn more about issues that are important to our children, youth and families
- improve care received through RCC
- increase community participation
- improve quality of life for our children, youth and families
