Baycrest’s Kunin-Lunenfeld Centre for Applied Research & Evaluation (KL-Care) recognizes that healthcare professionals and clinical researchers often face capacity challenges when attempting to balance their clinical responsibilities and access resources. The KL-CARE team provides clinicians, researchers, and industry partners within and outside of Baycrest with expertise, services, and capacity that span the research spectrum.
KL-CARE is overseen by the Research and Medical Services portfolios and is sponsored by both portfolio vice-presidents, respectively. Currently, KL-CARE is managed by the Director of Research, Innovation & Translation.
By providing valuable specialized research support for Baycrest clinicians, researchers and educators in one place, KL-Care helps to improve care practices at the bedside; develops and delivers new programs that enhance clients’ access to care; or provides evidence of the tangible impact of solutions, programs, or care practices on the quality of life of older adults.
KL-Care’s interdisciplinary approach and collaborative model of research have allowed KL-CARE staff to integrate themselves into the fabric of applied research and program evaluation projects across the medical and clinical services, education, and innovation portfolios.
