Advocate Research Innovation Forum

In 2010 the inaugural Forum was held and was a huge success, with over 900 attendees, and 140 posters summarizing scholarly works including case reports, case series, quality, safety, clinical trials, and population studies.  We in the Department of Research are proud of the accomplishments of the Investigators for their insight and quest for knowledge.  We also thank the Hospitals, Departments, Programs and all Advocate physicians, nurses and associates that directly or indirectly support the amazing research, quality, and performance improvement endeavors within Advocate.

The Forum is comprised of three events hosted at CMC, IMMC, and LGH but is open to the entire system and its affiliates. The Forum provides an opportunity for education and showcasing of the current and emerging scholarly activity that is taking place across the system and integrated within our daily clinical practice. Projects cover the full continuum of scholarly work and can include case reports, case series, performance and quality improvement, basic science, clinical trials, quality of care, clinical & educational program evaluations, and population health studies.

The Mission of the Department of Research is to enhance the quality of care and improve health outcomes for our patients, their families, and our communities by using the tools and products of research, performance and quality improvement, and by promoting multidisciplinary, lifelong learning. This means we work side-by-side with investigators to plan, implement, analyze, and report on research studies.  Furthermore, we act as a central resource that coordinates efforts, identifies resources, and provides support services.

Pursuant to its Mission, the Department of Research has developed an infrastructure to assist all Advocate associates and affiliates with transforming their ideas or suspicions into action.  If you have questions, comments, suggestions or need assistance with your scholarly activity please visit us at, email:, or simply call us at 847.384.3538.

As we look forward to the Forum 2013 and continued success and recognition of our investigators; we wish to share the exceptional work by Advocate investigators. At the link below you will find the scholarly work presented at previous Forums. View Forum Archive.
