Established at the University of Pennsylvania in 1989, the Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research, also known as CHOPR, operates as a unique community within the School of Nursing.
CHOPR is a research and research-training enterprise focusing on the outcomes of health care and health workforce policy.
CHOPR is the home to leading researchers in the fields of Nursing, Sociology, Demography, Medicine, Management, and Economics. Investigators explore nursing workforce issues, the supply of nurses, the value of nurse education, and scope of practice and how it impacts patient outcomes.
“Our policy research agenda is motivated by a commitment to improving health care outcomes by building an evidence base for health service management and providing direction for national policymakers.” Linda H. Aiken, PhD, RN, Director
