Upholding the highest standards 

Why this?

As a mission-driven organization, we hold ourselves to ethical standards that surpass the norm. But to date, in the research context, this has lacked specifics. We will codify this philosophy and infuse it throughout our research enterprise.


  • Uphold and exceed ethical standards for health research

Our plan includes these actions:

  • Develop a Providence-specific research ethics philosophy to encourage and communicate a shared understanding of our ethical practices, values and expectations.
  • Work with Indigenous partners to meaningfully incorporate Indigenous health research ethics into our research ethics philosophy.
