The overarching goals of research 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
- enhance quality of life
Since RCC is a co-locating SSCY Network partner, research conducted at RCC is reviewed and approved by the SSCY Research and Evaluation Committee. Research projects conducted at RCC and SSCY Centre must align with our mission, vision and values. Researchers will be asked to participate in a variety of knowledge translation activities, in order to share research results with families, clinicians, managers, other researchers, and RCC partners.
The SSCY Research and Evaluation Committee is responsible for reviewing and approving proposals for all research:
- conducted at SSCY Centre (including recruitment and data collection)
- involving electronic medical records covered by the SSCY Data Sharing Agreement
- that are about the SSCY Network.
Please consult the SSCY Network website for complete information on how to apply for research access at SSCY Centre. You may download the SSCY Research Access Guideline and Application Form here:
