Maritime SPOR SUPPORT Unit

About Us

Welcome to the Maritime SPOR SUPPORT Unit (MSSU). We are one of several SUPPORT Units across Canada, bringing health research findings to life by helping to integrate them into patient care.

We engage with patients from across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI, and collaborate with the research community on governance, priority setting, and the planning and conducting of research. Through this meaningful and active collaboration, we contribute to an enhanced health system, engaged health research, and improved health outcomes. We are dedicated to supporting patient-oriented research and decision-making that will reflect the needs and values of Maritime patients.

The MSSU and other Support for People and Patient-Oriented Research and Trials (SUPPORT) Units across Canada are administered by SPOR, the Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research. SPOR, a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) initiative, is focused on integrating health research more effectively into care.
