Other Research Partnerships

HQC collaborates with researchers in Saskatchewan and beyond to conduct and promote research that directly impacts the quality of health care delivered to Saskatchewan residents. Our researchers and research analysts have been using large health databases for health system research, monitoring and evaluation for more than a decade.

Working with academic and clinician researchers allows us to explore a wider range of questions that matter to researchers, policy and decision makers, and Saskatchewan residents.

 We work on projects that: 

  • Are consistent with our legislated mandate in the Health Quality Council Act
  • Involve data analysis methods, research designs, or data sets that we would like to learn or become more skilled at using;
  • Have the potential to directly influence the delivery of health services or the development of health care policy in Saskatchewan; and,
  • Are consistent with the health care system’s strategic improvement priorities 

Interested in partnering with HQC on a project that fits these criteria? Submit your idea here. 

Here are some examples of projects that we've worked on recently:

  • The epidemiology and pharmacoepidemiology of multiple sclerosis in Saskatchewan
  • Medication adherence in multiple sclerosis: A model for other chronic diseases?
  • Evaluating drug-related outcomes in inflammatory bowel disease
  • Assessing the prevalence and predictors of and subsequent health care utilization associated with loss of response to anti-TNF therapy in patients with inflammatory bowel disease
  • Cost of pain within long-term care residents in Saskatchewan
