Baycrest Client Registry
Clients of the Apotex Centre, Jewish Home for the Aged; The Terraces of Baycrest Retirement Residence; and all current Baycrest inpatients and outpatients have the opportunity to contribute to the ground-breaking research taking place at Baycrest Health Sciences.
Baycrest’s Client Registry is a secure, searchable database comprised of a limited selection of health information. The Client Registry will be used to match health information to the eligibility criteria for research studies being conducted at Baycrest’s Rotman Research Institute, home to some of the world’s most renowned cognitive neuroscientists.
This means that one day in the future a researcher may ask a client if they would like to take part in a research study that has been approved by the Baycrest Research Ethics Board.
Those who do not wish to participate can opt out of the Client Registry or decline to take part in a research study at any time by calling the Research Hotline at 416-785-2500 ext. 2900.
In compliance with the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA), all healthcare information is kept strictly confidential, secure and protected. The well-being of our clients is our priority and quality of care will not change in any way whether or not someone chooses to take part in research.
Questions, concerns or requests to opt out should be directed to the Research Hotline or sent via email to ResearchHotline@baycrest.org.
