For over a decade, SEARCH Canada (SEARCH - Swift, Efficient Application of Research in Community Health) has been supporting the public health care system by providing learning opportunities, project facilitation, network support and information services to health professionals and researchers in Alberta and elsewhere in Canada. SEARCH creates strong networks that connect evidence to the immediate issues facing decision-makers. The result is a direct increase in the ability of health professionals and health organizations to apply high quality evidence to practice and management decisions. Established as a not-for-profit organization with Alberta's health authorities, universities and research funders, SEARCH staff and faculty are respected by health and academic communities across Canada for their unique and highly effective approaches to knowledge transfer and applied research.
