Applied research—benefitting patients and the public

CDIC is already achieving results that benefit patients and health systems, at home and around the world. Our researchers are also clinicians so patients see the impact of research applied immediately, improving the patient experience as well as saving the system money.

Improving quality of life

Hundreds of local patients with kidney failure can now dialyze at home as a result of research proving the cost effectiveness and improved outcomes of home dialysis, including improved quality of life and independence.

CDIC researchers are also working to create more effective devices, drugs and methods by partnering with industry to bring new devices to market for chronic disease management and assessing real-world effectiveness of current drugs, treatments, and processes using health outcomes and utilization data.

Additionally, our principal investigators are strengthening the next generation through their roles as Associate Professors and Section Heads at the Faculty of Health Sciences, College of Medicine at the University of Manitoba, This deep relationship with UofM enables rapid transfer of CDIC innovation into education.
