 Mission and Goals

Mission Statement

"To be a collaborative network working together to conduct influential and informative research dedicated to improving perinatal surgical health care delivery in Canada."


Primary Goals

  1. Establish and maintain a flagship, national pediatric surgical database, thus providing an infrastructure to facilitate and encourage collaborative national research.


  2. Identify variations in clinical practices in Canada and identify which are associated with favourable and unfavourable patient outcomes. Use this data to put forward new recommendations for targeted practice intervention for care of these patients.


  3. Study the impact of clinical practice decisions on resource use and its implications for improving patient outcomes, consequently furthering our understanding of the cost-benefit concerns of the Canadian health care system.
