Creative Practices Centre (CPC)

Together with Drs. Mary Egan and Judy King, and with funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation and the Ontario Research Fund, I recently established the Creative Practices Centre in the Faculty of Health Sciences, School of Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Ottawa.  The CPC supports interdisciplinary research aimed at improving the quality of life for those with chronic illnesses, such as cancer.  The emphasis of the CPC is to engage with creative practices, such as photography, visual arts, and writing, as forms of support and as strategies of knowledge translation.

One hallmark of qualitative research is its participatory emphasis. The CPC has a meeting room and communication facilities for researchers to meet with participants and key stakeholders. The Centre also promotes collaborative relationships between researchers, providing space for them to meet in person and/or electronically in order to foster the expansion of qualitative and mixed methods research.
