Evidence-based, responsive, patient-centred, and timely: these are just a few of the words used to describe the Maritime Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research SUPPORT
Unit (MSSU), based at Saint Mary’s. It’s an initiative expected to improve patient care by making it easier for researchers across the country to work together and share data. “It’s a huge opportunity to have a unit here,” says Dr. Kevin Vessey, Associate Vice-President of Research at Saint Mary’s and a member of the MSSU’s Training Advisory Committee. “It has the potential to raise our profile for health research and training.”
Dr. Michael Zhang, Associate Professor of Management Science at the Sobey School of Business, is also involved as a member of MSSU’s Scientific Advisory and Patient Engagement Committees.
