Emergency Departments at Horizon’s regional hospitals are extremely short staffed this weekend and priority will be given to trauma and critical care patients. Patients with non-urgent medical issues may experience long wait times.


The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP)

The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) is an institution-wide review and education process for research conducted at Horizon Health Network, to ensure the protection of research participants’ rights.

The HRPP is accredited through Human Research Accreditation Canada, meaning that our standard operation procedures, review processes, and education and training program all conform to rigorous standards and evidence-based best practices established for the conduct of human research. To learn more about the structure of our HRPP and how we review research, read Authority and Scope of Horizon’s Human Research Protection Program, or contact our office.
