How To Suggest a Topic for Research

The Effective Health Care Program accepts suggestions for research topics from anyone. Heads of major hospitals, clinicians, and patients have all offered suggestions for new research topics. You can read suggestions that others have submitted before you submit your own.

All suggestions for research are carefully considered based on a set of criteria. Priority is given to research suggestions that focus on certain conditions, patient populations, or may have a significant impact on the quality of patient care for a large number of people. You can read more about how research topics are chosen before you submit your suggestion for research.
