Research & Education
At Misericordia, we take research very seriously. Research allows us to study ways to improve the quality of life of our patients and residents.
Research at Misericordia Health Centre focuses on aligning and integrating clinical education and research activities to enhance academic and clinical performance. MHC supports research activities and academic partnerships to promote innovation in our programs and services.
Before any projects begin, though, our research review committee approves research proposals. The committee addresses any ethical concerns and ensures the research projects are in accordance with Misericordia’s faith-based values prior to granting approval.
As an evolving research and teaching centre, Misericordia is proud to be affiliated with various educational organizations, including the universities of Manitoba, Winnipeg and Brandon, as well as colleges and learning centres in Winnipeg.
Our specialist physicians, nurses and allied health-care professionals provide person-centred care and conduct research while giving future health-care professionals hands-on training.
Some of our professionals hold joint appointments with the universities.
Misericordia Health Centre co-ordinates student placement in collaboration with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.
More than 178 university and college students trained with us in 2015 -2016 for more than 22,562 hours – from physiotherapists to paramedics to dietitians.
There are a variety of funding opportunities available to Misericordia staff – from scholarships to education funding and more.
A comprehensive general orientation takes place six times a year for new staff members. We encourage the attendance of current staff members who wish to review specific areas.
