An Enriched Research Team

Traditionally, medical researchers published in academic journals, and their results could take years to filter through to front-line care. The POR model is engineered to speed up this process by bringing front line practitioners and policy makers to the research team. Their contribution helps guide the research on a practical, sustainable path. The knowledge generated by the research can more easily be put into practice, and new information and improvements in care informs health care policy as soon as possible.
