UBC Health recognizes the growing need for research collaborations that address the increasingly complex and interconnected problems facing society. The recent addition of research to the scope of UBC Health illustrates our commitment to addressing these complex challenges by providing a variety of supports to cultivate newly developing ideas, ambitions, and teams while leveraging and extending existing institutional expertise, relationships, and infrastructure at UBC.

As part of our objective to foster a community of practice for health scholars and students at UBC, Dr. Kim McGrail, Director of Research at UBC Health, will deliver a webinar about Health Data Research Network (HDRN) Canada on June 24.

The virtual presentation will provide an overview of HDRN Canada, how the network operates, and objectives for and progress on their work building the SPOR Canadian Data Platform. The SPOR platform and its data access support hub provide new supports to researchers who are interested in using routinely-collected data for multi-jurisdictional research. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
