Research

To improve its efficacy, APROQUEN collaborates with scholars, foundations, and academic institutions among others who desire to conduct community-based and participatory research in the areas of burns and cleft lip and palate.

APROQUEN and its partners come together around a mutually identified goal where every stakeholder participates in the research. That is, from the design phase to the point where outcomes are published and programs, procedures, or systems are enhanced due to the findings.

In choosing our partners, we are vigilant about protecting the safety and confidentiality of our patients. Our main goal in working with researchers is to enhance the quality of our services.

Our most successful partnerships result in research that improves our work and helps inform policymakers and experts in the medical and social services fields about effective, replicable models.
