VHA Research


Our Research

VHA Home HealthCare is dedicated to supporting research and innovation that advances human welfare, creates new knowledge, develops our understanding and informs best practices in home and community care.

Our research focuses on key areas of home and community care that create possibilities for more independence, support clients to live at home, promote safe and rewarding working conditions for home care providers, and build toward fully integrated care across sectors. We strive to break new ground in research and development of integrated solutions that reflect the voices of our clients, caregivers and providers.

The VHA Research Vision 2025 supports VHA’s 2025 Strategic Plan: Care to Transform (Download PDF) by focusing our research in three priority areas: Better Care, Safer Teams and More Connected.

Our Future

VHA invests in the future of home care research by supporting graduate student researchers and through clinician fellowship programs that offer therapists, nurses and personal support workers the opportunity to develop their research skills.

Our Partners

We partner with academics, clients, our own point-of-care staff, and the community in collaborative research to promote the discovery and development of meaningful, innovative solutions to advance home care practice.
