Research from the Department of Family Medicine continues to generate findings that help us better understand and improve our primary health care clinical, education and policy environments.  Our research has produced important improvements in patient health and is regularly recognized with local, provincial, national and international awards for excellence.

The Department’s research interest groups continue to demonstrate innovation and productivity. The groups provide a mechanism for members to collaborate and share skill sets and ideas. Our research interest groups include primary care medical education, palliative care, care of the elderly, dementia care, child health, quality in family practice, maternity and postpartum care, medication safety and effectiveness, ehealth, pain management, global health, and cardiovascular health.

There is renewed emphasis in our Department on collaboration with other departments across McMaster as well as extending our collaborations across Canada and the world. We continue to have a very strong and well-supported research culture, financially viable infrastructure.
