We, the Clinical Evaluation Research Unit based at the Kingston General Hospital, are an academic research organization that provides expertise in research and quality improvement initiatives in acute care medicine.
We specialize in the areas of knowledge generation and by working with us, our colleagues and collaborators are able to participate in innovative, cutting edge, scientific clinical research that has a high impact on the health outcomes of patients and their families. Our expertise in knowledge synthesis has enabled us to develop evidence based clinical practice guidelines in areas of nutrition and ventilator associated pneumonia.
We are World leaders in knowledge translation and through our elaborate international networks, we have delineated the gaps between best practice defined by clinical practice guidelines, and actual practice. By providing the necessary framework and benchmarking, we can help identify areas of improvement in current practices. We are committed to narrowing this gap throughout the World.
