Health Research Data Repository

Based within the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Alberta, the Health Research Data Repository (HRDR) is a secure and confidential virtual research environment (VRE) created to support health related research projects, to support collaboration across research disciplines, to house health research data and meta-data throughout their life-cycle, and to promote the secondary use and re-purposing of health research data. The HRDR also has a mandate to promote and offer educational opportunities regarding research data management best practices. The mission of the HRDR is to stimulate both qualitative and quantitative health related research while building a collaborative culture of respect relating to data management and confidentiality.

KUSP currently houses research data for a number of its projects including TREC and SCOPE. We are committed to have our future data accessible in the HRDR's secure environment available to other researchers.
